What is Post-Acute Care After a Hospital Stay?

If you are hospitalized, you might be told the next stop before going home safely is additional care - perhaps in a rehab center or post-acute facility.

What you need is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center so you can continue on your road to recovery in a comfortable environment. 

 

How do you know which center is right for you?

Make sure they have the expertise and treatment protocols for treating patients like you. Consider asking:

  • What is their experience?
  • How quickly do patients go home?
  • Will they work with you on your goals?

 

 What should you expect from a short-term stay in a skilled nursing and rehab center?

  • A center should provide a multidisciplinary approach to your care which involves you, your physician and your family. The center will work toward your safe discharge goal from the day of admission.
  • Intensive rehabilitation, including physical, occupation and speech therapy, should be offered by in-house therapists. Their focus should be on maximizing your functional abilities so you will be stronger, more confident and able to care for yourself as independently as possible. They may also work with your loved ones so they can help with lifestyle or home changes.
  • Comprehensive medical services provide skilled nursing services, under the direction of your physician, such as wound care, respiratory services, tracheostomy care and weaning, tube feeding, intravenous therapy, pain and medication management. Dietary management and guidance is offered.

How Could a Post-Hospital Rehabilitation Center Help You Recover?

Post-hospital rehabilitation centers work with you, your family, and your existing medical team to supervise your care.  Doctors, registered nurses, nursing aides, dieticians, physical, occupational and speech therapists, are only a few of the qualified professionals at post-hospital rehabilitation centers that help aid your recovery. Post-hospital rehabilitation centers work with you to understand your needs, goals and expectations and help make you the strong independent person you aim to become once again.

What will happen during your stay?

  • The post-acute rehabilitation center’s doctor will work with your existing medical team and the medical team at the center to oversee your care.
  • Registered nurses and nursing aides will care for you around the clock, according to your doctor’s orders, tending to your medication needs, monitoring for problems, and checking to ensure you are making progress and on your way to meeting your health care goals.
  • Physical therapists will teach you how to make your muscles stronger and employ exercises and techniques to help you meet your goals. Physical therapy is focused on helping you learn to maneuver stairs safely, get in and out of vehicles, sit down safely on a chair or toilet, balance and use assistive devices such as crutches, a walker or cane appropriately.
  • Occupational therapists will help you relearn the tasks that you perform each day at home. You might relearn how to use a knife safely, cook, do laundry, etc.  Their goal is to ensure you are able to perform activities of daily living safely and independently, once you return home.
  • Speech and language therapists will evaluate problems with speech and swallowing.
  • A dietitian will work with you to ensure any special dietary needs are met.
