What is Post-Acute Care
Post-Acute Care includes rehabilitation or palliative services received after, or instead of stay in an acute care hospital. Depending on the intensity of care a patient may require, treatment may include a stay in a facility, ongoing outpatient therapy, or care provided at home. Post-Acute Care facilities include long-term hospitals, inpatient rehab facilities, home health agencies, and skilled nursing facilities.
