Recovering from a lower extremity orthopedic condition like a hip replacement can be challenging due to the impacts relating to pain, mobility, self-care and wound management. The keys to minimizing the patient length of stay and to ensure a successful home return, are to make sure that you choose a Skilled Nursing / Rehabilitation Center that demonstrates its commitment and ability to providing customized care, specifically focused on the needs of a lower extremity condition.
Questions to ask a Skilled Nursing / Rehabilitation Community:
- What is your care plan for a hip replacement?
- How do you prepare a patient to leave the Rehabilitation setting and effectively treat their hip once released?
- What is your average length of stay for a hip replacement?
