Transitional Care is provided in Transition Care Units (TCU) and River Ridge Transition Care Environment (TCE).

A transitional care facility is a temporary place for patients that are waiting for placement into an alternate care setting.

Other medical care and rehabilitation is provided before going home, to a nursing home or to other more permanent placement. This includes Geriatric Rehab.

In the WRHA setting TCUs usually have a defined period of time for the resident's stay to determine most appropriate final discharge destination.

If a patient's discharge to a TCU was delayed by more than a day then also code Awaiting/delayed transfer to lower acuity site in Winnipeg other than home or LTC/PCH.
