Located on the fourth floor of Calvert Memorial Hospital, our Transitional Care Unit provides patients a "home away from home" with the unit's warm, inviting surroundings and personalized care. The 16-bed unit brings an innovative approach to patient recovery, filling the gap between shortened hospital stays and home.
Every patient's plan of care is customized to their specific needs, receiving more medical and rehabilitative care than is practical to provide at home. Patients, their families and staff are involved in setting individualized goals and learning the skills needed prior to going home. Skilled nursing services such as intravenous therapy (IV), pain management and wound care are routinely at hand. Rehabilitative specialists in physical, occupational, speech, recreational and respiratory therapies coordinate with nurses and physicians as a team.
Patients usually stay in transitional care from one to two weeks. Rooms are beautifully furnished with warm patterns and colors. Patients are encouraged to eat in the dining room and days are filled with individual medical and/or rehabilitative therapies and leisure time activities. Patients are able to visit with their pet dogs or cats and encourages to enjoy the visiting therapy dogs.
