Long-Term Care Collaboration
The OCH Health System works closely with many long-term care facilities. Direct and bedside admissions to the OCH Health System expedite the admissions process, increasing efficiency for patients and the facilities. In addition to transport services to and from facilities, OCH also employs wound specialists who provide wound assessment for nursing home residents. The wound care team works directly with long-term care facilities to develop a plan of care that can be managed in the facility with the products they use. Collaboration with area long-term care facilities ensures high continuity of care for each patient.
