Inpatient Care for COVID-19
Gaylord treats patients recovering from COVID-19 in both our inpatient and outpatient settings. Inpatients come to Gaylord from an acute care hospital may need complex medical care, pulmonary care, ventilator weaning, and intenstive rehabilitation. After recovery in the inpatient setting or after recovering from COVID-19 without hospitalizaion patients may need additional outpatient support to deal with the effects of the disease. Gaylord is specially equipped to help patients who have had COVID-19 to recover and rehabilitate from the sometimes persistent effects of this disease, whether as an inpatient or outpatient.
Outpatient Services for COVID-19 Recovery
Gaylord Outpatient Services is uniquely qualified to help you complete your recovery from COVID-19, especially if you are what is called a “long-hauler,” someone with long-term effects from the coronavirus. Our expertise in rehabilitation, experience with inpatient COVID patients, and ability to customize services provide our patients with superior outcomes. The Gaylord team works to coordinate your care while prioritizing your personal goals. With various locations and telehealth to supplement in-person care, we are with you every step of the way.
Common residual effects of COVID-19 addressed through outpatient services may include breathing difficulty and shortness of breath, muscle weakness, neuropathy and achy joints, depression and anxiety, cognitive processing and executive functioning difficulties - short term memory loss - “brain fog.”
