Patients in a long term acute care hospital are medically stable but fragile patients, requiring intensive nursing care and often attention to various internal medicine matters. At BayCare Alliant, we offer daily physician intervention with multiple medical subspecialties.
Dialysis (Hemodialysis and Peritoneal)
For our patients with advanced kidney disease or renal failure, we offer bedside dialysis treatments. Dialysis is a treatment that removes harmful substances from the blood when the kidneys are unable to function properly. Bedside dialysis allows us to care for our patients in a way that is comfortable and convenient for them.
Infectious Disease Management
Complicated infections, such as MRSA, C-diff and sepsis, demand attention and treatment from specially trained clinicians. Our nursing staff is trained in the complexities of specialized iv therapy and long term iv antibiotics. Physicians address diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, and other conditions requiring advanced treatments and precautions.
