Short-term care, sometimes referred to as transitional care, provides special care services to patients who no longer require the full resources of the hospital but still need medical assistance in order to live alone, return to home or move to an assisted living facility. It is typically implemented when a patient needs help recovering from an illness, injury or surgery.
