Establishing a Better Level of Patient Care
There are many parts to the rehab and recovery process. However, it is important for people to find the right level of care that will best benefit them. When it comes to direct patient care, there are highs and lows depending on which facility a person ends up in.
What Is Baseline Care?
For a rehab facility to be considered licensed, it must provide a baseline of care. This means that the minimum amount of care must be provided that a person needs to navigate the recovery process. For many facilities, this means that people are given the following:
- A bed to sleep in
- Meals to eat
- Group therapy
- Meetings with a therapist
- 30 Days of inpatient care
Having these does not make a facility better or worse than any other. However, at its most basic, the rehab system does not always look out for the individual to the degree that helps the most. That being said, there are other options available.
How Has Patient Care Evolved?
Patient care in the United States has evolved quite a bit in the past century. Before that, people were often seen as being unfixable. This was especially true for those with what we now refer to as a dual diagnosis.
When someone was mired in addiction, they were often blamed, shunned, and even jailed for the crime of what amounted to passive forms of self-harm. Those who were not placed in jails were placed in homes for the mentally ill and given medications to physically subdue them in an effort to “save them from themselves.”
Thankfully, the system has evolved.
We now have a regulated system whose main concern is the health and well-being of the patient. This means that facilities exist that are neither prisons nor long-term homes for the mentally ill. In fact, the entire concept of treatment has gone from a wild west mentality to an ordered, well-run suburb where people follow rules and obey laws.
For people with substance abuse and mental health issues, this means that their fears can be assuaged. Once a person has decided to do something about their issues, they are no longer going it alone. In fact, patient care has created a niche for people who want to help. It has made the well-being of the patients the top priority, with the baseline of care having moved up to a degree that there is now relief and satisfaction upon entering a program.
Why Great Patient Care Matters
There are many reasons for facilities to take extreme measures to assist in proper patient care. The first is that they want people to succeed. Although substance abuse has a high relapse rate, people are never turned away if they need to return. Facilities want their patients to find the right path and take their time to get through the program because it is not about rushing, and it is not about numbers.
For staff members, the idea of leaving a patient without proper care is unthinkable. In some facilities, staff members will stay late or come in early just to help a patient that they know could use a little extra assistance to get them past certain rehab hurdles. This attention to patient care can mean the difference between someone trusting a program and someone who wants nothing but to leave.
What Is a Luxury Rehab?
When great patient care is extrapolated out, it must have a topping-off point where the care has been taken to a level that can only be described as luxurious. In a luxury rehab, every baseline need is covered. However, they are covered in a way that takes away any of the guesswork as to whether the patient’s best needs are in mind. Consider what a luxury rehab offers over a typical baseline-care rehab facility:
- Smaller number of residents
- Private rooms or suites
- Executive chef on the premises
- Additional and alternative therapies
- Small group therapy sizes
- Extra activities
- Relaxation techniques
- Calming locales
These are only a sampling of what a luxury rehab can offer. The overall goal is to put a person not just in a rehab facility, but in a place where they can concentrate on themselves and the idea of assessing and healing their entire being. Staff is able to assist with this in every aspect due to their higher numbers and their extensive training.
When a person is able to become a resident at a luxury rehab, they will find that not only can they put their fears away, but they can breathe easier and sleep better knowing that they are in the best hands possible.
