Abstract

In the United States, we are blessed with many options for postacute care: inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and outpatient rehabilitation. However, choosing the appropriate level of care can be a daunting task. It requires interdisciplinary input and involvement of all stakeholders. The decision should be informed by outcomes data specific to the patient's diagnosis, impairments, and psychosocial supports.
