Skilled care in 2017 is available on multiple levels and will encompass different specialties and care modalities based upon individual clinical requirements.
The 3 most common types of in-patient care are as follows:
- Basic Care – Assistance with essential daily living activities, such as personal care (ADL’s), ambulation, supervision, and safety.
- Skilled Nursing Care – The services of a registered nurse are required on a regular basis for health concerns, treatments, and procedures.
- Sub-Acute/Post-acute Rehabilitation – Comprehensive inpatient care designed for someone who has had an acute illness, injury, or exacerbation of a disease process.
Focus on Post-acute Care
A successful post-acute rehabilitation program, should offer state-of-the-art technology and advanced rehabilitation techniques to help patients regain their prior level of functioning and achieve independence.
Rigorous staff education and training is critical in a post-acute rehabilitation environment. Moreover, the implementation and integration of proper protocols will ensure that highly skilled professionals will be ready to serve patients with complex medical needs.
