    Home Hospitalization

    Home hospitalization as an alternative to staying in the hospital, is one of the signature changes in the world of medicine.

    In Israel, as in the Western world, the burden of hospitalization is growing. Overcrowding and the pressure medical staff is under, combined with the constant bustle of the emergency room and hospital wards, leads in many cases to feelings of loneliness and alienation among those hospitalized, mainly the elderly. The atmosphere and these conditions can affect patients’ recovery, exhaust their emotional strength and the resources required for their return to health. As a result, both family members and primary caregivers feel the burden and the difficulties beyond the medical treatment of the patient.

    Sharan’s Home Hospitalization provides many patients with optimal conditions for healing, rehabilitation, supervision and receipt of continuous medical care.

    Sharan’s Home Hospitalization provides patients with the comprehensive treatment package they require in a comfortable, familiar environment, preventing prolonged hospitalization.

    Sharan’s Home Hospitalization  ensures that patients receive personal medical care tailored to their precise needs, and significantly reduces the risks involved in hospitalization such as exposure to hospital acquired infections.

    Patients and family members gain the emotional and health benefits from staying at home, in their familiar environment. This leads to improved and increased recovery rates.

    Sharan’s Home Hospitalization includes accompaniment and professional medical care managed by a team of a physician, a nurse, as well as medical professionals and additional services, according to need. Sharan’s professional teams visit patients at their homes on a daily basis and provide telephone response to medical queries 24/7.


    Upon Release from Hospital, Home Treatment Begins

    Identifying patients suited to Home Hospitalization services is performed by professional HMO representatives (family physicians, palliative unit staff and others) following their assessment of the compatibility and eligibility of the patient for palliative care.

    Patients compatibility and eligibility is based on routine clinical criteria, and of course – on patients’ desire and willingness to receive palliative care.

    Upon returning home, within a short time, an initial visit of Sharan’s medical team will be coordinated to customize a tailormade plan as part of their inclusion in Sharan’s Home Hospitalization program.

    During the visit, the patient will be examined, objectives will be determined, medical needs will be identified, and a treatment plan will be set in place.


    Service Fees

    Sharan Home Hospitalization service is provided free of charge for members of HMOs (subject to terms and conditions). Other patients may join this service privately.  


    Does Hospitalization at Home Suit Me? Yes, if you have…

    • Undergone various medical procedures and operations.
    • Undergone treatment in cases of deteriorating chronic illness. For example, in the event of infection or dehydration with a background of existing illness.

    If you suffer from the following chronic conditions:

    • Heart failure
    • Lung failure
    • Liver failure
    • Chronic kidney failure
    • Stroke
    • Complex diabetes
    • Dementia and Alzheimer’s
    • Continuous Home Hospitalization as preventive treatment for recurring hospitalizations. For example, in certain cases of chronic illnesses, recurring hospitalizations can be prevented by follow-up, supervision and managing patients’ medical conditions. The treatment plan, its duration and frequency are determined in coordination with patients’ medical conditions and varying needs.


    Why Hospitalization  at Home?

    Sometimes there is no choice and we are forced to visit the ER or be admitted to hospital. However, this also requires discretion and performing risk assessment to reach an informed decision. Therefore, it is worthwhile understanding and acknowledging the risks involved in hospitalization. For example:

    • The time spent in the ER or in hospital wards exposes the patient to hospital acquired infections, posing a danger and an impediment to recovery.
    • In the hospital, without the close supervision of family members, the patient is more open to risks of falling, poor nutrition and sleep deprivation.
    • From the emotional aspect, the busy hospital environment is an unfamiliar environment. This can lead to increasing emotional distress, confusion, feelings of sadness, loneliness and reduced independence (deconditioning).


    In view of these risks, during hospitalization, it is worth examining the patient’s suitability to Hospitalization at Home care – Homepital. Hospitalization at Home is the most recommended option, particularly for the elderly, who need and desire to remain in a familiar and secure home environment. Therefore, subject to determination by the professional team of the suitability of the patient for  Home Hospitalization care, this important option is vastly available.


    Homepital, accompanied by Sharan’s professional medical staff, significantly reduces health risks, enables patients a feeling of control to manage their illness and allows them to enjoy a familiar routine with their family.


    • Staying in a familiar home environment surrounded by family has a positive influence on recovery, mainly among elderly patients.
    • Continuous treatment can be effectively managed in a familiar environment.
    • Involvement of familiar community medicine facilities – the connection with the family physician, who knows the patient’s medical history, is preserved.
    • For the family – Home Hospitalization – Homepital is the key to peace of mind. When patients are in optimal environments, they are calm, comfortable and their recovery improves. These facts put the primary caregivers at ease when coping with the illness on a daily basis in addition to the demands of treatment, whilst still maintaining the majority of their routine.


    Additionally, patients receiving home care are less in need for family members taking time off work and save on other expenses such as hospital visits, parking fees, transport fees, etc.
