Why Care Settings Matter: Advantages of Inpatient Rehabilitation for COVID-19 Recovery and Beyond
Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services
December 18, 2020
Ensuring patients receive the right level of care at the right time in their care journey is especially critical in today’s environment. Post-acute care has played an essential role during the pandemic and will continue to be a part of the solution as more patients recover. However, it is important to note that not all post-acute care settings are created equal.
Following the fluctuating patient and facility needs due to COVID-19, hospitals worked quickly to adapt and integrate innovative technologies to best serve the entire patient population and therefore continued to produce positive outcomes across the care continuum. Further, early rehabilitation of COVID-19 patients can enhance pulmonary, respiratory function, reduce complications, improve function, cognitive impairments and quality of life, according to a recent Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine study.
A hospital’s ability to seamlessly adapt to the changing environment enables their inpatient rehabilitation programs to offer a variety of resources and programs that help deliver quality care, reduce readmissions and improve overall facility operations. These include:
Daily physician oversight and a multidisciplinary therapy team providing daily therapy tailored to each patient.
Employing specially-trained Registered Nurses who are fully equipped to treat patients with various care needs.
Hospital-level infection control measures.
Strong coordination between an acute episode and the next level of care is more important than ever because of the unique and positive role rehabilitation units play in treating medically complex patients, and specifically treating patients recovering from COVID-19.
This guide breaks down the key differences between the levels of post-acute care, the unique benefits of inpatient rehabilitation in treating COVID-19 patients, and the opportunity to optimize your rehab program or start a new program.
