Welcov Short-term Care is typically for patients who still need specialized care after being discharged from the hospital. Our program restores hope. Our services assist patients in recovery so they can safely return home.
What should I expect?
Our services can accelerate recovery and help avoid re-hospitalization. Welcov Healthcare provides 24-hour care by licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants. A huge component of the short-term stay is therapy. Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists use state-of-the-art equipment to help patients reach their goals.
Welcov Healthcare utilizes a program that can promote faster recovery from health problems and also reduce resident readmissions to hospitals. Daylight IQ™ is a disease management system from Clinical Outcomes Management Systems. It’s a computer software program that enables physicians and our nurses to more effectively manage residents who have multiple medical conditions. The program outlines recommended, diagnostic-specific assessments based on care pathways and guidelines. Nurses regularly perform the assessments and the data entered is then organized in easily reviewable formats. The care team compares and analyzes the data on a regular basis, using the information to track the effectiveness of the care plan and make treatment adjustments as prompted.
“My wife recently had a stay at Belle Fourche Healthcare Community. The admissions process was so smooth. The staff helped my wife get strong enough to go home, and made sure she was in a safe environment when she got there. We were treated like a king and queen.”
