Intermediate Care Unit - S.S.D. Cure intermedie

The Intermediate Care Unit is part of the Gerontology and Motor Sciences Department, including the Geriatrics Units in the Galliera Hospital and the Genoa Regional Elderly Health Care Service Operational Unit of the Local Health Authority [ASL3]. The Unit is dedicated to fragile patients who, after suffering an acute pathological event, require clinical stabilisation so as to regain self-sufficiency. These are for the most part elderly patients suffering from multiple pathologies requiring health care assistance, even if less intensive than those in the acute care centre. All patients are assessed by the Hospital Geriatric Assessment Unit and come exclusively from the Hospital. Discharge is generally to their homes or to a local facility when home discharge is not possible: in these cases guarded discharge is provided for.
