LONG STAY - CHRONIC CARE FACILITY
It is well known that most patients can be discharged from a hospital in 3-7 days (except major surgery and injuries). However, many patients occupy hospital beds for months and someTIMEs years although they may not need the level of care provided by a full-fledged hospital. Long stay patients have resulted in exhausting the limited number of hospital beds and other hospital resources which results in costing the government money, manpower and beds. Hence, Long stay – Chronic Care Facility are in high demand to free these beds while at the same TIME providing the right level of medical, care for this class of patients.
Chronic Care Facility can provide care to patients that require long hospital stay with minimum medical care, which can be a great solution for hospitals with over booked beds such as MOH, Military and National Guard hospitals.
