Hospital visits can be the result of an injury, serious illness, or surgery. Afterward, you may require inpatient care in rehab, which offers high levels of specialized care that’s not available at home. This includes 24-hour nursing care for those who don’t have the physical or mental ability to care for yourself. The duration of rehab after a hospital stay can vary from weeks to months, depending on the patient.
