Discharge After Elective Surgery

It’s no secret that as the geriatric population continues to age, the need for elective surgery and procedures will also increase. 

From quick cataract surgery to a crucial cardiovascular operation, there are thousands of different categories that can arise. 

Once released from a surgery center or hospital, patients usually require more care than can be completed in-home.

That’s where specialized care at South Coast Post-Acute can turn the tides in terms of recovery time and improvement.

Elective Surgeries for Geriatric Patients

For most patients, most routine surgeries are considered elective surgery and are covered under most insurance plans. 

However, there are particular procedures that are more invasive and that’s where post-acute care becomes a part of the decision making the process. 

The goal of post-acute care is to get patients back on their feet in a shorter amount of time, and the ability of these facilities to handle various needs makes them an ideal choice when it comes to recovery. 

When it comes to determining that you or a loved one is in need of post-acute care, it’s commonly an arrangement agreed upon between everyone involved, including the patient requiring care. 

 Decisions about where to place patients often reflect several factors—the availability within a given market, the proximity to a beneficiary’s home, patient and family preferences, and financial relationships between the referring hospital and the PAC provider.
