appears fiance's mother is in an ltac: long term assisted care hospital. in order to move to a rehab facility, she needs to be able to tolerate 3hrs a day of therapy per rehab facility regs; most patients who also need dialysis are unable to tolerate that much rehab in same day as dialysis.
often best solution is a subacute rehab unit in a skilled nursing facility (snf)--provides 1-2hrs/day rehab services. it's rare in pa to have a rehab/subacutefailicty that can provide dialysis onsite patients needing dialysis are transported 3 days/week to outpt dialysis center. not all snf facilites have staff skilled in trach care or have respiratory therapy support.
the ltac case manger or social work staff should provide you with a list of facilites that can accommidate her needs that you can visit + select. as soon as ltac goals are met, facility will no longer receive payment for care + they have the right to transfer her to next level of care - any appropriate facility that has an open bed.
since case mgmt/sw staff on the weekend, please followup monday to obtain list.
