Who qualifies for Transitional Care treatment in Spokane?
Providence Transitional Care Unit is designed for alert, oriented individuals who are recovering from orthopedic, cardiac and neurological procedures. A typical stay is one to two weeks, but there is no mandatory limit on the length of stay.
Our experienced nursing staff cares for rehabilitation patients in Spokane with a variety of special medical needs including IVs, Wound Vacs, TPN (artificial nutrition), previously-established tracheotomies and mechanical hearts.
Patient care is managed by one of our medical directors, or by your own physician.
Our outpatient program allows us to offer patients the option of continuing their rehabilitation progress with the same excellent therapists they worked with prior to discharge.
Medicare requires a minimum three-night stay in the hospital to qualify for transitional care unit coverage. Private insurance requirements vary by contract; we can help you determine coverage eligibility.
Unlike in-patient rehabilitation settings, there is no requirement for patients to tolerate three hours of therapy each day. Therapy schedules and intensity are individually designed to accommodate the patient’s needs and tolerance levels.
