Pre-Registration For Rehabilitation
When someone is planning an elective surgery, they should consider what happens after the hospital discharge. There are times that discharging directly back to home is not the safest option.
Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services Pre-Registration program is designed to help people have an active part in planning their post-surgical treatment and decision-making.
The process is easy. It begins by calling the facility to schedule a visit with the admissions staff. At this visit, the admissions staff provides a tour of the short term rehabilitation unit and the therapy gym. Potential patients have the opportunity to meet the staff who will be providing their care and to ask questions about what to expect from a post-hospital stay and how insurance pays for the care.
When a potential patient confirms the facility is their provider of choice, the admissions staff will verify insurance coverage and benefits. If prior authorization is needed the admissions staff takes care of this. Facility admission paperwork is completed in advance, making the bridge from hospital to facility as seamless as possible.
A Clinical Liaison follows the patient after surgery and confirms with the hospital the patient is pre-registered with our Liberty facility. The liaison coordinates the discharge process making sure the surgeon’s orders and any special arrangements that may be needed are made, and everything is ready at the facility for the patient’s arrival.
During the rehabilitation in the facility, patients and their caregivers are also encouraged to attend a discharge planning class. These classes are set up to help ease the transition back home.
Overall, the Pre-registration program with Liberty is designed to minimize the stress and anxiety a patient and their family may have about the post hospitalization process and allows them to focus on their recuperation following their surgery.
