Our department provides subsequent care of patients mainly from other clinics and departments of the University Hospital Motol. We help these patients with rehabilitation, reconditioning and training of self-care skills. We have only medical beds at the LTCH. The duration of hospitalization depends on health reasons, which are the only factors that can be a reason for acceptance to the LTCH. Sometimes it can happen, that health condition of a patient is stabilized and there are no further reasons for him to stay at the LTCH, but nevertheless, the patient cannot be released to home care for some objective reasons. In such case we resolve the situation immediately for the benefit of the patient.
