I have just changed my area of working and I was asked what type/level of care a patient was being given. I had so much to remember and it was rushed, I am sure the word started with B? This sounds so silly but as the area is more clinical the care being offered is so different to my previous post . I appreciate any help. Thank you.

You are going to have to be more specific

sorry. I am nursing patients with varying clinical needs head injuries and strokes. I realise we have palliative care but I was asked "Is A, needing ???????? care. I realise that is not very specific. Maybe I will have to pose my question to my line manager.

Are you referring to levels of care as in primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary care?

Are you in the US? Your choice of terminology makes me think you are not in the US/CAN and thus the confusion

As best I can figure...someone asked the OP something to the effect of "Does Mr. Smith need ________ care?" and the OP is looking for the word that fits the blank. Some random words I can think of include rehab, wound, palliative, etc. Unfortunately, without more info. it will be impossible to fill in the blank. My guess, as someone else already mentioned, is that this is not the US or Canada, so the blank may be a term with which the majority of nurses on AN are unfamiliar.
