Life After Burke

Discharge to Skilled Nursing Facilities

Although Burke's goal is to always discharge patients to their home environment, some patients who are discharged from an inpatient program will require additional inpatient care. One option for them would be sub-acute rehabilitation. Although not as intensive as acute rehab, sub-acute care at a skilled nursing facility (nursing home) may be required for patients with serious illnesses or injuries who require more time for rehabilitation.

The number of patients that are discharged from Burke to a sub acute setting varies each year by program. For additional information on this or any of Burke's published outcomes, please refer to the inpatient section of our website.



When Additional Care is Needed

One of Burke's primary goals for patients is that they be able to return to the home environment from which they came. However, some patients who are discharged from an inpatient program at Burke will require additional inpatient care.

Although not as intensive, sub acute care at a skilled nursing facility may be required for patients with serious illnesses or injuries who require more time for rehabilitation or skilled nursing care.
