After Your Hospital Visit

Follow-Up Care

Patients who have a longer medical recovery or who live at home alone with no one to help often benefit from a brief admission to a skilled nursing facility for additional therapy and skilled nursing care. Patients may choose from a number of extended care facilities in the west Georgia area.

Home health care, including physical and/or occupational therapy, may be prescribed for patients returning home following their hospital stay or recovery in an extended care facility. This service is available through Tanner Home Health.

Outpatient physical and/or occupational therapy is often prescribed for patients returning home to help them become more independent and to resume more normal activities of daily living. Tanner Health System is pleased to offer this service as well. Tanner's therapists work closely with the patient and the physician to meet the prescribed goals.
