Inpatient Care

Inpatient care is the care of patients whose condition requires admission to a hospital. Progress in modern medicine and the advent of comprehensive out-patient clinics ensure that patients are only admitted to a hospital when they are extremely ill or have severe physical trauma.

Patients enter inpatient care mainly from previous ambulatory care such as a referral from a family doctor, or through emergency medicine departments. The patient formally becomes an “inpatient” at the writing of an admission note. Likewise, it is formally ended by writing a discharge note.

Benefits of inpatient care:

As an inpatient at Foot and Ankle, you have access to many key services and advantages-close at hand, whenever you need them. These include:

  • The attention of our caring nursing staff to ensure your comfort and support in any way they can.
  • Accurate and timely provision of all your prescribed medications, including the pain medication you may need to remain comfortable.
  • Diagnostic imaging and laboratory testing, to provide our staff and your physician with timely and accurate information on your health and healing.
  • Respiratory, occupational and physical therapy to help you gain the independence you need to be ready for your return home, or to the next level of care.
