Short-term rehabilitation offers care and rehabilitation services to help patients return to the comfort of their homes quickly, safely, and confidently. Provided by rehabilitation specialists, short-term rehabilitation lets patients continue recovery from their hospital stay with a transition to home as soon as possible. The short-term rehabilitation team continues to treat their medical and rehabilitative needs.

Long-term rehabilitation offers the same rehabilitation services as well as restorative nursing to help patients maintain their current lifestyles and independence.

Home health can be arranged to fit the needs of the patient during their stay at Sage Rehab Unit at Capitol House. This service ensures no break in rehab services that could set the patient back in meeting treatment goals.

COVID-19 in Long-Term Care Facilities

Nursing homes are required to report positive COVID-19 cases to the Department of Health. The Department is working with each individual facility to increase testing of residents with and without symptoms; to minimize infection; and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The greatest risk for nursing homes is COVID-19 spreading within facilities and among vulnerable residents. A nursing home with residents who have tested positive for the illness is not a threat to the general public.

The Department is following recent CMS requirements and only certified adult care facilities are required to report the information in this report.

This information is as complete and accurate as possible. It will be reported weekly on Wednesdays. In addition, the Department is sharing aggregate totals for other adult residential facilities, which are not certified. This information will be shared on Wednesdays through a Department news release.

Capitol House Nursing & Rehabilitation complies with the State regulations for reporting, and routinely emails a report to families of residents.  For the State of Louisiana's weekly reports, please visit the Louisiana Department of Health's website by clicking here.
