3 LTACH STACH LTACH = Long-Term Acute Care Hospital STACH = Short-Term Acute Care Hospital

4 What is the difference? Most people who need inpatient hospital services are admitted to an acute-care hospital for a relatively short stay. Long-term acute care hospitals (LATCHs) are certified as acute-care hospitals, but LTACHs focus on patients who, on average, stay more than 25 days. Medicare vs. Commercial

5 Many of the patients in LATCHs are transferred there from an intensive or critical care unit. LTACHs specialize in treating patients with clinically complex problems such as multiple acute or chronic conditions, but who may improve with time and care LTACHs generally provide services like respiratory therapy, antibiotic therapy, wound care and rehab services

6 Long-term care vs. Long-term acute care Long-term care usually refers to care that s custodial, such as assisting with feeding or dressing, even if there is some health care given Medicare does not cover custodial care in a long-term acute care hospital LTACHs are hospitals that give inpatient services to people who need a much longer stay to get well.

7 What is the difference? Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Vent liberation not planned Typically after a fall, broken hip, or minor stroke Few SNFs deal with ventilator care Patients are frequently ambulatory Full Medicare coverage up to 100 days per spell of illness Patients meet criteria for chronic care Weekly/monthly physician assessments LTACH For complex respiratory disease, complicated wound care, and multi-system organ failure Many patients with respiratory-relevant diagnoses are ventilator dependent Patients are typically bedbound ALOS = 25 days Patients must meet acute care admission and continued stay criteria Daily physician assessments

8 Patient Profile What does a typical LTACH patient look like?

9 Where do LTACH patients admit from and discharge to? Admit to LTACH From: Short-term acute care ICU Step-down Unit Med/Surg Floor Direct admit / other MD Office Home Care Agency Emergency Department Skilled Nursing Facility Discharge from LTACH to: Home with Home Services Home w/out Home Services Rehab Assisted Living/SNF
