Inpatient, subacute rehabilitation is generally offered at a skilled nursing facility or long-term acute care hospital. Patients with more complex medical care such as mechanical ventilation or advanced wound care often undergo at least their initial rehabilitation at a long-term acute care hospital. Both skilled nursing facility and long-term acute care hospital therapy is generally, but not always, with fewer hours of therapy offered per week. Such facilities are not bound to a minimum hours of therapy per day.
