As a short-term resident of the 30-bed Transitional Care Unit, you receive the care you need to make the transition from the hospital back to your home.
Your care plan is based on an extensive evaluation that your doctor provides us. Based on this evaluation, you may receive:
- Skilled nursing care, such as wound care, IV therapy, IV antibiotics, respiratory therapy or assistance with feedings
- Up to two hours of daily physical, occupational or speech therapy; therapy is provided on the Unit to make it more convenient for residents
- Pain management care
- Daily nutritional and dietary support
- Pre-surgery monitoring, available to those who have been hospitalized and are awaiting surgery
We care for those at all stages of illness or injury, including those who are recovering from major surgeries, as well as joint replacements, fractures or other orthopedic conditions.
To make sure you are prepared to go home after your stay with us, our social worker begins working with you and your family on the very first day to develop a realistic “discharge plan.” This plan includes long- and short-term goals, as well as any additional needs you may have upon leaving the TCU. Families also receive progress updates twice a week and are always welcome to contact us with any questions or comments.
The Transitional Care Unit is Medicare-certified and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
