Haym Salomon Home’s subacute unit offers patients a high level of subacute care. We are the mid-way point between intensive care units and general care facilities. We have the equipment and staff required to ensure that our patients do not go back to the ICU or the hospital. This is one of our key aims.
One way we achieve this through exceptional staff to patient ratios. For example, for every six patients, we have one dedicated RN. Our unit consists of 18 beds so each patient is guaranteed individualized and prompt care.
We utilize EKGs (electrocardiograms) and, if necessary, other cardiac-related diagnostic measures.
The patients in our subacute unit come to us with a range of health issues. The unit is not solely for cardiac patients. However, because of the severity of the illnesses or injuries our patients present with, cardiac monitoring is an essential part of care in the subacute setting.
