Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation
Our goal is to help patients attain their highest possible level of independence
Who do we help?
Patients typically come to us from an acute care hospital, nursing care facility or home with one of these diagnoses:
- Spinal cord injury
- Major multiple trauma
- Femur (hip) fracture
- Brain injury
- Neurological disorders
- Active polyarticular rheumatoid arthritis
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Seronegative arthropathies
- Systemic vasculidites with joint inflammation
- Severe or advanced osteoarthritis involving two or more major joints with a minimum of three weeks of pre-surgery outpatient therapy, several times a week.
- Bilateral knee or hip replacement
- Single joint replacement with BMI of 50 or above
- Single joint replacement of person 85 years of age or older
How do we help?
Our services start with a referral from the patient's physician. Then, we will collect and assess information on the patient's:
- Medical condition
- Physical function
- Cognitive status
- Preadmission activity level
- Discharge plans
There are many levels of rehabilitation, each of which is designed to meet specific needs and conditions. Medicare has set specific and binding rules for each level. Our staff rehabilitation physicians must ensure patients meet those guidelines and qualify for admission.
Those who do not meet guidelines for acute inpatient rehabilitation might find appropriate care in a less intense rehabilitation program, such as transitional care, sub-acute rehabilitation, a skilled nursing facility, outpatient therapy or home health care. Your referring physician or social worker will be able to explain those options to you.
If you qualify for admission and agree to participate in the program, we will contact your insurance provider and obtain pre-certification before you are admitted.
