The Transitional Care Unit (TCU), located on the third floor of MDH, is a 16-bed short-term skilled nursing facility with semi-private rooms, where patients are considered when they are no longer in need of acute care, but not ready to return home. A typical stay in the TCU is usually a week to ten days as long as the patient meets care criteria.
In order to be eligible for TCU, a patient must meet qualifications established by Medicare. If the patient meets the criteria for TCU, many services are offered, including therapy, care plan meetings, activities, and much more.
