What are the benefits of Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation?
Vibra Rehabilitation Hospitals surpass professional standards for patients recovering from:
- Advanced osteoarthritis
- Stroke, brain, or spinal cord injury
- Multiple Trauma
- Neurological conditions
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Orthopedic injuries
- Reconstructive joint replacement surgery and more
After a neurologic, traumatic or orthopedic event, a person may be left with various functional limitations, which may prohibit him or her from returning to their premorbid life. Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation is generally offered in a hospital setting like ours, with the primary goal of providing medical, physical and psychological intervention to help overcome these functional limitations.
We establish a plan of care and set individual treatment goals by partnering patients and their families with a multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists. Attending physicians are trained and board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Individualized treatment plans are developed through comprehensive therapeutic intervention and education. Our goal is to restore and maximize independence. Under the leadership of the Physiatrist (a medical doctor who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation), the multidisciplinary team evaluates each patient and an all inclusive rehabilitation regimen based on specific and individualized needs is developed. The multidisciplinary team is comprised of rehabilitation nurses, physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists, case managers, social workers, and more. The primary benefit of such a comprehensive team approach is that the patient has the opportunity and support to progress to their maximum functional level of independence with improved quality of life prior to returning home. Family input and training is an integral part of this process.
Comprehensive acute rehabilitation services will be provided with confidence and compassion in our state-of-the-art gyms, treatment areas, and designated activities-of-daily-living treatment.
