Case Management and Discharge Planning
The discharge planning process begins prior to admission to the facility, at which time the patient and family discuss goals for recuperation and plans for on-going care.
During your stay, the plan is re-evaluated by all members of the team and the levels of care are adjusted according to patient progress and needs. This care planning process is an integral part of our team's ability to ensure that goals are met as quickly as possible.
Comprehensive, Flexible Care
Methodist Hospital Union County is a Critical Access Hospital (CAH). This designation allows the inclusion of Swing Beds in the patient services program.
With the incorporation of swing beds, patients may qualify to remain in a sub-acute care setting until they are able to be discharged to home or another level of care.
Swing Beds also allow time for the nursing staff to teach patients how to care for themselves once they return home. The goal is for the patient to achieve their highest level of independence.
