Admission criteria

Referrals to Infirmary LTAC Hospital can be made by physicians, social workers, case managers, home health providers, caregivers or family members.

A medical professional evaluates each patient referred to Infirmary LTAC Hospital to verify that the patient meets admission criteria. It is important that potential patients are evaluated early in the course of their acute-care stay in order to qualify for optimal benefits of long-term acute-care. Patients may be admitted directly from a short stay hospital intensive care unit with respiratory- or ventilator-dependent conditions or other complex medical conditions requiring aggressive and continuous acute-care services.
