Transitional Care

Skyline’s transitional care helps patients make the transition from acute care to the

appropriate care setting for rehabilitation.

 

Our Transitional Care Program treats a variety of conditions

including but not limited to: stroke, heart disease, joint

replacement, respiratory diseases, newly diagnosed diabetics,

extended antibiotic therapy and other surgeries.

 

Skyline services include:

• Physical therapy to improve strength, endurance, flexibility,

  motor control and stability

• Occupational therapy to improve daily skills such as

  bathing, dressing and grooming, as well as cognitive skills to help you return to your daily activities

• Respiratory therapy to provide oxygen therapy for patients, as well as evaluation for in-home oxygen use

• Skilled nursing services 24-hours a day

• Wound care consisting of treatments and dressing changes for wounds such as surgical incisions, ulcers and burns

• Discharge planner who works with a patient to ensure a smooth and successful transition back to home

 

For Medicare patients, the first 20 days of care is free. Medicare pays 100 percent of the cost of the room, therapies,

X-rays, laboratory fees, medications and physician visits. After the first 20 days, patients can stay up to 100 days with

a co-pay (supplemental insurance may cover co-pay).

 

Who is a transitional care candidate?

Patients need a physician’s referral and must have a three-night qualifying stay in a hospital (at Skyline or elsewhere) to be Medicare eligible.

 

Anyone may contact Skyline Hospital regarding transitional care. Patients, currently at another hospital can ask to coordinate a transfer to Skyline.
