Our dedicated trach and vent unit has the ability to provide care for 44 trach patients and 26 vent patients. We offer 24 hour respiratory care with a specialized staff trained to maintain and wean patients with unique respiratory needs. Our primary goal for ventilator rehabilitation is to wean an individual from mechanical ventilation and to resume or regain an optimal level of independent function. One of our specialties includes the acceptance of patients who have FIO2 settings. We can accommodate patients that require greater than 40% O2 on a case by case basis. Our facility also offers whirlpool baths for trach and vent patients. Our staff conducts weekly care plan meetings for appropriate coordination of care and discharge planning.
