Patient Management in Subacute Rehabilitation Centers Q & A

What is a subacute rehabilitation center?

Subacute rehabilitation centers are establishments designed to provide services to patients who need continuing care but are preparing to return to their own homes in the near future. In many cases, the patients in a subacute rehabilitation center have had surgery or were recently hospitalized for another reason.

Subacute rehabilitation centers provide you with a range of services, including skilled nursing care, rehabilitative services, monitoring, and more. While you’re in this type of facility, you’ll also enjoy a more comfortable, home-like environment. The goal of the subacute rehabilitation center is to help you continue on the path to recovery and prepare for your return home.

When is a subacute rehabilitation center appropriate?

Care in a subacute rehabilitation center may be appropriate if you’ve just had surgery and you can be discharged from the hospital, but you aren’t ready to go home yet. It may also be appropriate if you’ve recently been hospitalized for an acute or chronic illness and you can’t care for yourself without assistance yet.

Patients often come to subacute rehabilitation centers if they need IV therapy, pain management, wound care, restorative rehabilitation, or post-surgical care. Once you no longer need these services, you’ll be able to return home.

How long do patients remain in subacute rehabilitation centers?

If you’re concerned about how long you’ll need to stay in the subacute rehabilitation center, ask your doctor for more information.
