  • MANAGED CARE

    Compared to other care providers, Kindred Hospitals reduce the cost, trauma and risk of short-term hospital readmission by being staffed and equipped to rapidly respond to changes in medical condition. This makes Kindred a premier provider of high quality, cost-effective healthcare. We honor many managed care and other insurance plans.

    Reducing Readmissions

    With hospital stays shorter than they used to be, patients may be discharged in frailer states. Approximately 20% of Medicare patients are readmitted within 30 days of discharge. From 2008-2011 Kindred Hospitals reduced rehospitalization rates by 8.4%. We continue to employ innovative strategies to reduce them further.Rehospitalization

    Because Kindred Hospital offers more specialized care, we can provide targeted, optimal care for patients’ individual needs and conditions. Our hospital provides 24/7 RN coverage, physician support and consistent assignment of CNAs in order to best assess patients’ needs. We are able to offer interdisciplinary care and services to meet patients’ complex needs with a wide array of skilled staff expertly trained in respiratory care, infection control, nursing, nutrition, and more.

    Our focus on patient needs helps to ensure a full recovery and discharge home or to a lower level of care, instead of a return to the hospital.

    Congestive heart failure, heart attack and pneumonia account for the majority of Medicare readmissions due to recurrence, complications and poor adherence to medications and post-hospital regimens. Appropriate referrals may include:

    • post-cardiac surgery
    • congestive heart failure
    • valvular heart disease
    • congenital heart disease
    • post-myocardial infarct with complications
    • cardiomyopathy
    • peripheral vascular disease

    Respiratory conditions also contribute to Medicare readmissions due to recurrence, complications and poor adherence to medications and post-hospital regimens. Appropriate referrals may include:

    • pneumonia
    • aspiration pneumonia
    • exacerbation of COPD
    • respiratory failure
    • Indications:
    • shortness of breath
    • dyspnea
    • X-ray with infiltrate
    • elevated temp and/or change in sputum
    • decreased O2 saturation
    • elevated frequency of nebulizer treatments
    • frequent cough after meals (possible aspiration)

    Kindred Hospital has the time to provide the care to enhance recovery and optimize the patient’s condition, thereby reducing the number of readmissions.
