Inpatient Care

Extended care given to a patient in a hospital, nursing home, or a medical institution, such as a clinic or an emergency room visit. Distinguishable from “outpatient”. Once “booked into a room”, care becomes “inpatient”.

Typically, inpatient procedures are more complicated or require more attention or acute recovery time. Chiropractic care is typically provided in an outpatient model in a private clinical establishment  but can be provided on an inpatient basis in a facility setting.
