Subacute Care

Once a child is released from an acute care facility (hospital) and is no longer in need of high-level medical care and supervision, a medically fragile patient will probably require further treatment, rehabilitation and evaluation. These types of patients may include those with medically complex illnesses, pulmonary or cardiovascular disease, those with neurologic disorders, and patients who may be in need of specialized equipment or devices such as ventilators or halos.
