Do you accept paraplegics/wheelchair bound patients?
Yes, but only if they are able to transfer in and out of the wheelchair to perform their activities of daily living (ADLs) without any assistance.
Do you accept incontinent patients?
Patients who are incontinent are not automatically denied from the program. Incontinent patients referred must be able to change their own briefs without assistance in order to be considered into the program.
Do you accept undocumented patients?
Yes, status in this country does not affect admittance into the program.
Does Recuperative Care have medical personnel on staff?
Yes. All of our Recuperative Care locations are staffed with licensed nurses and personnel with a medical background. All of the Recuperative Care staff, whether medical or not, is trained in CPR and First Aid.
Do you Accept RSO's (Registered Sex Offender)?
It depends on the type of offense committed. Acceptance will be on a case-by-case basis. Please talk to the Referral Coordinator.
Can a patient be referred after they have been discharged from the hospital?
Yes, but the case manager referring the patient will have to first get approval to refer the patient from their Director/Supervisor of the Discharging hospital, and must make sure the patient has all the needed medications, medical supplies, and transportation to the approved Recuperative Care location prior to their arrival.
Will sending the patient to Recuperative Care guarantee housing?
No. Unfortunately housing is not guaranteed, but we at Recuperative Care can guarantee that our staff will do everything possible to obtain housing for each patient or place them in the right direction to obtain housing.
How long does it take for a referral to be reviewed?
It varies, but the average turnaround time is 2 hours, 7 days a week. Once the referral coordinator has all patient information to make an informed decision, the referral coordinator will determine approval or denial to the program.
