High Quality Patient Care that Reduces Readmissions
When patients need more intensive care over a longer period of time, the financials can grow rampantly. Reducing the time between first admission and final discharge isn’t just good for the patient – it helps the hospitals and payers too.
For patients, quality care can save both their life and the quality of it.
For hospitals, the early discharges and reduced readmission can alleviate 30-day readmission fines and open up new hospital beds.
For payers, reduced readmissions and increased speed of recovery can cut costs and increase profits.
Lafayette Physical Rehabilitation Hospital is the best choice if you want need to ensure patient recoveries. IRFs help STACHs by reducing length of stay, reducing 30-day readmissions, and freeing up more beds.

How Helping Patients Help Your Bottom Line
When you have patients who require intense rehabilitation for extended periods of time, you need a trusted partner that you know will provide them with the same high-quality care you provide.
While SNFs try to fill that role, an IRF is uniquely suited to not only care for patients with complex medical conditions and provide intense rehabilitation but can also reduce the chances of hospital readmission.
With at least three hours per day of therapy, a low nurse-to-patient ratio, and specialists available, IRF patients are less likely to require readmission than patients of a SNF. In the end, patients experience a better continuum of care, while hospitals like yours end up with open beds.
