1. We are a small hospital offering specialized care. We operate freestanding hospitals and hospital-within-a-hospital models.
2. Our patients are very sick and medically complex. Many of them are on mechanical ventilators.
3. Many of our patients have Chronic Critically Ill Syndrome.
4. These patients often barely survive ICUs (which stabilize them). For the next step of recovery, they require up to one month or longer of extended hospital care.
CMS expenditure increased from:
Decreases length of stay at STAC
Saves costs due to specialization in longer stay patients thus reducing supply costs and increasing efficiency.
LTAC monitors quality in this type of patient they serve.
5% Return to Host Rule
3 and 10 day “interrupted stay” rules
Medicare 25 Day LOS Rule
(will discuss under regulatory section.)
Nature of symbiotic relationship between general hospital (Short-Term Acute Care) and a Hospital-Within-a-Hospital (HIH)
We work together to assist Short Term Acute Care Hospital with readmit measure. (Penalties involved here).
The sequence is generally STACH LTACH SNF for our type of patient (Chronically Critically Ill). However, if patients become too acute then LTACH physicians can admit directly from SNF.
