Medica Group has been authorized by Regional Determination no. G09762 of July 12, 2017, and accredited with the Regional Health Service for long-term care services by Regional Council Resolution 1002 of 12/30/2021, as a facility that provides inpatient services on a continuous cycle and/or daytime basis for post-acute care in long-term care for 60 beds.
WHAT IS THE CARE IN A CODE 60 long term care unit?
Medica Group’s post-acute long-term care is an Operational Unit that provides inpatient services and is directed at the care and irreplaceable functional recovery of patients who have passed the acute phase but need further evaluative and therapeutic interventions that cannot be efficiently delivered in alternative regimens to hospitalization.
THE REQUEST TO TAKE CHARGE
The request for admission to long-term care can only be filled out by the hospital doctor and sent to the following email/fax:
firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 06/232598519.
HEALTH CARE IN LONG-TERM CARE
Continuous 24-hour medical supervision, nursing nursing and rehabilitative treatment is provided in the long-term care unit. Welfare-rehabilitation treatment is usually carried out within a period of 60 days after admission to the facility.
The ward consists of double rooms and single rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning and television, as well as common socializing areas on the floors. A gymnasium equipped for the specific functional needs of our residents is also available.
The presence of a functional multi-professional team to ensure the activities provided for in the Individual Care Plans and/or Individual Rehabilitation Projects is ensured, consisting of physicians, psychologists, physiotherapists, nurses, social health workers and social workers.
The clinical conditions that can occur as a result of pathology make it necessary to define for each individual patient a specific rehabilitation project so as to offer diversified responses depending on the needs, residual and recoverable abilities, family, social and environmental context, expectations and priorities of the patient and his or her family members.
The individual rehabilitation project defines the specific areas of intervention, objectives, timing and delivery of interventions, verification of results, and the practitioners involved.
The rehabilitation program is updated whenever there is a significant change in the patient’s clinical or functional condition.

Individual rehabilitation project
The variability in the degree of disability that can occur as a result of a disease makes it necessary to define for each individual patient a specific rehabilitation project so as to offer diversified responses according to need.
These needs are determined by the clinical condition, the residual and recoverable abilities, the family, social and environmental context, and the expectations and priorities of the patient and his or her family members.
Pivotal to the project is the comprehensive care of the patient and his or her family in all aspects concerning the disease.
Within the rehabilitation project, the program defines specific areas of intervention, short-term goals, timing and delivery of interventions, verification of results, and the practitioners involved.
All team members participate in the design of the project so that planned rehabilitation interventions aim toward common goals and do not conflict with each other.
The user has the right to participate in the development of the care plan; making explicit and sharing with the patient and family members the short-, medium- and long-term goals and the actions necessary to achieve them is essential.
The rehabilitation program must be reviewed and modified whenever there is a substantial change in the elements in which it was developed, so scheduled meetings of the team working on the patient are held.
Any user is allowed to discontinue care at any stage of the clinical care process or refuse a particular treatment. Health care providers have an obligation to inform the patient of the possible consequences of this refusal.
Other welfare services
At the ground floor is the Chapel where, on holidays and according to a set schedule, Mass is celebrated. The chaplain is available to guests and their families for times of listening and prayer. The request for religious assistance can be communicated directly to the chaplain, or through the nursing coordinator of the ward.
Users may request religious assistance other than Catholic.
