Subacute Nursing Services
Serving patients recuperating from surgery, strokes and other conditions.
As today's health care insurers are forcing shorter hospital stays, an interim setting is often required upon discharge from the acute-care hospital. To assist our patients' successful transition from the acute hospital setting to home, or another more appropriate level of care, Sharp HealthCare provides specialized nursing units to bridge the gap between hospital and community re-entry. These transitional care units are designed for those patients requiring more intensive nursing and medical care that can be provided in a long-term care facility.
Our subacute nursing units offer comprehensive medical care that serves patients recuperating from surgery, strokes, broken limbs, persistent sores and other conditions once treated solely in hospitals. Patients eventually go home, though some do transition to other, more appropriate levels of care, as determined by their personal physician.
Subacute services include:
- Dysphagia therapy and enteral feeding
- Extensive wound care
- IV therapy
- Ostomy care
- Pain management
- Respiratory care
- Tracheostomy care and oxygen therapy
