Patients at long-term care facilities have unique needs and receiving the care they need to live a more comfortable life should always be easily accessible. While they might face challenges with their health, receiving the care they need shouldn’t be a challenge. However, depending on the location and resources of their long-term care facility, their care might face some limitations.
For long-term care facility patients, receiving the care they need might require transportation to an offsite location, such as a hospital or clinic. While this may be necessary for keeping a patient healthy and happy, it can pose new challenges for patients and long-term care facilities alike.
Patients need to stay on top of their health, but transporting them to another healthcare facility can be costly, time-consuming, challenging, and uncomfortable for them. Furthermore, depending on if their health status is compromised, transporting them to a hospital or clinic could pose some potential danger to their wellbeing. From the standpoint of comfort alone, it’s more pleasant for patients to receive the care they need in their long-term care facility in the comfort of their own room. Wouldn’t it be better if their care could go to them instead of sacrificing their comfort?

Patients at long-term care facilities generally have unique healthcare needs that necessitate the attentive care long-term care facilities are able to provide. As is the nature with most healthcare providers, though, some long-term care facilities face obstacles when it comes to the care they are able to provide. While these obstacles are a reality for some long-term care facilities, it doesn’t have to result in limitations for patients. With Transmed’s mobile ultrasound services, patients can receive the care they need without the hassle and discomfort of being transported offsite.
