Many patients with medically complex conditions benefit from Sheepshead’s sub-acute care after a hospital stay and before going home. Patients with an acute illness, injury or exacerbation of a disease, receive goal oriented treatment rendered immediately after hospitalization. Most of our sub-acute patients are recovering from complex medical conditions. Our interdisciplinary sub-acute team includes: physicians, nurses, and other relevant professional disciplines, who are trained and knowledgeable in assessing and managing these patients.

 

 
 

Our Subacute care is the link between the hospital and home. Sheepshead's interdisciplinary team of professionals assesses each patient in our subacute care unit and develops a care plan with individualized treatment. Skilled nursing and rehabilitative care that is comprehensive and designed to facilitate recovery from an illness, surgery or accident, help patients resume an independent lifestyle at home.

Using a goal-oriented approach, we work to help patients reach the maximum level of independence. We offer favorable nurse-to-patient staffing ratios. Our nursing staff is experienced in caring for complex medical and post-surgical needs that may include pneumonia, coronary bypass surgery, cardio-thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, and orthopedic surgery. The Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation program incorporates the most advanced techniques into individualized treatment plans that result in better outcomes and an earlier discharge to home.
