Marshall’s Transitional Care Center
Bridging the Gap from Hospital to Home
Marshall’s Transitional Care Center (TCC) is a separately licensed,
independent skilled nursing facility, located within Marshall Hospital
in Placerville. TCC helps ease the transition from a hospital stay to
home and independent living. It’s designed to help patients on the
road to recovery after certain illnesses or injuries, especially those
linked with orthopedic or neurological impairments.
Twenty-four-hour nursing care, intensive therapies, injectable or IV medications,
wound care, respiratory treatment, and other medical services are provided
in a warm, home-like atmosphere, but with complete hospital resources
such as diagnostic imaging, lab, and onsite pharmacy services.
Admission to TCC
A physician referral is necessary for admission to TCC. A patient in TCC
typically has one or more of the following needs:
- Therapies or treatments administered by a licensed nurse or other health
- Rehabilitation services needed at least daily
- Complex wound care
Marshall TCC is fully certified by Medicare, and many private insurance
companies also cover skilled care in TCC.
Specialized Therapy Services
Our physical therapists are specialists in evaluation and treatment of
impaired mobility, strength, and endurance caused by medical problems.
They promote safety and self-confidence during hospital recovery and at
home. We also offer occupational therapy and speech therapy.
Some of the services provided in TCC include:
- 24 Hour skilled care
- Speech therapy
- Intensive therapies
- Injectable or IV medications
- Wound care
- Respiratory treatment and other medical services
- Approved pet visits
- Discharge planning
- Social services
Planning for the continued recovery of our patients once they leave TCC
is a very important aspect of the care we offer. A case manager will assist
in preparing a smooth transition from the hospital to home or next level
of care. Any need for social services will also be discussed shortly after
admission to assist in crisis intervention, financial evaluation and referrals
and coordination of post-hospital arrangements with community resources.
