Suffering from a brain, spinal cord or medically complex injury is challenging enough — but patients who are experiencing some level of respiratory failure and require ventilator care are faced with even greater difficulties. Ventilator nursing care patients are not physiologically able to maintain spontaneous breathing. The need for subacute respiratory care is often seen in patients with neuromuscular and central nervous system diseases, and spinal cord and other medically complex conditions such as cerebral vascular accident, myocardial infarction and multiple sclerosis.

Kare Partners accepts patients that not only show potential for ventilator weaning, but those that may need long-term care placement. We offer both adult and pediatric ventilator nursing care.

These patients are at greater risk of developing infections because their respiratory systems are already compromised. At Kare Partners, the chance of infection is significantly less due to the small size of each facility and the training of staff in airway care.
