FAQ – COVID 19

For Referring Hospitals and Physicians

In support of our mission to provide the right care at a critical time, RML Specialty Hospital is now accepting patients with COVID-19.

Who qualifies to be admitted to RML’s COVID Unit?

Patients must meet long-term acute care hospital (LTCH) criteria. Specific criteria for the COVID Unit the patient must:

  • Be in referring hospital at least 10 days
  • Be 72 hours fever-free without the support of fever-reducing medications
  • Under 300lbs.

What is RML’s process for accepting COVID-19 patients?

RML Specialty Hospital is clinically assessing each patient to ensure they meet established LTCH COVID criteria and that it is safe for the patient to be transferred from the referring hospital. Each referred patient’s evaluation is reviewed by our Chief Medical Officer (CMO). When necessary, our CMO will speak with the patient’s physician at the referring hospital.
