Discharged from the Hospital and Not Quite Ready for Home
These days, hospital stays are becoming shorter and shorter, often keeping patients only a day or two after surgery. The quick turnaround time is usually considered a good thing because most patients are more comfortable at home. However, in some cases, patients no longer require the 24-hour care of doctors and nurses but are not able to stay at home alone due to mobility or self-care issues. If you or a loved one find yourself in need of care in between the hospital and home, Mease Manor can be your short term rehab facility in Dunedin, FL.
