The Inpatient Rehabilitation Program assists patients recovering from strokes, motor vehicle accidents, head and spinal injuries, surgeries, neurological disorders and other situations that limit the ability of individuals to perform daily living activities.
Patients and their families are an integral part of the interdisciplinary treatment team. Other team members are included according to the needs of the individual patient, but may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, case managers, social workers, recreation therapists, nurses, psychologists and physiatrists (physicians specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation). This team develops a plan to guide, motivate and support the patient through his or her transition to the highest level of functional independence.
The Inpatient Rehabilitation Program is conveniently located within St. Francis Health. This location provides a safety net for patients, with response from in-house emergency physicians available 24 hours a day. The 36-bed size of the Inpatient Program also allows patients the opportunity to interact closely with each other during meals and community outings. Patients obtain a large amount of one-to-one treatment time with their therapist and/or nurse, which helps ensure a safe and secure environment.
