How does someone become a post-acute care patient?

When a patient meets post-acute care criteria, a referral is necessary for our review and acceptance. While hospitals typically refer patients to our facility, individuals or their families can also request a referral. The transition to becoming a post-acute care patient involves collaboration among healthcare professionals, such as physicians, nurses, therapists, and case managers. This collaborative effort aims to ensure a seamless transition and continuity of care, with the decision being guided by factors like the individual's medical condition, functional status, and specific care requirements for optimal recovery.
