Subacute Care

Windsor’s Sub-Acute Care bridges the gap between the advanced technologies of a hospital with the efficiency of a skilled nursing facility. In centers with separate dedicated subacute units, trained interdisciplinary professionals treat medically fragile patients using robust technologies and sophisticated therapies and equipment, with compassionate, patient-centered care. Windsor’s mission is to stabilize the subacute patient’s disease process and prepare them so they may return safely to their lives as soon as possible.

  • Subacute Respiratory Services - Special services to promote air exchange using tracheostomies and ventilators to promote stabilization and recovery.
  • Contracture Management - utilizes a combination of modalities (electrical stimulation, ultrasound), hot packs along with manual techniques, exercises, acupressure, aromatherapy, and splinting programs to impact existing contractures and prevent further contractures.
  • Wheelchair Seating and Positioning - Physical and Occupational therapists in collaboration with certified wheelchair specialists ensure residents are utilizing the most optimal wheelchair which allows for comfort, functional mobility, skin integrity and the least restrictive method of mobility.
  • Certified Wound Care Nursing – Wound care involves diagnosing wound type, considering factors that affect wound healing, and the proper treatments for wound management. Once the wound is diagnosed and all factors are considered, Windsor’s certified wound care nurses determine the best treatment options. Windsor care centers utilize the V. A. C. Veraflo system, an advanced wound therapy that significantly helps wounds heal more quickly.
  • IV Therapy - IV Therapy is a common practice for administering medications, chemotherapy treatments, blood transfusions and fluids to dehydrated patients.
