Rehabilitation for quicker recovery
Rehabilitation is an important factor in returning a patient to their day-to-day life. As such, inpatient rehab offers therapy throughout the day. Studies have shown that inpatient rehabilitation helps patients, return home sooner, have greater success walking independently, and have lower rates of readmission to traditional hospitals during and after treatment. Enabling patients to heal at a faster pace compared to outpatient rehab.
Each patient will have a different time line of recovery, as well as unique needs in meeting that timeline. That's why inpatient rehab incorporates a diverse team of specialists to oversee every part of the recovery. These team members can adapt to each patient, scheduling more-frequent or longer therapy sessions to help with the recovery process or recommending different types of therapy, such as physical, speech, and occupational therapy. With personalized treatment, a patient can heal faster and be discharged to return home.
Medically complex treatments
Inpatient rehabilitation facilities have rigorous protocols and highly trained specialists to treat complex medical conditions. The health complications include, major multiple trauma, stroke, brain injury, total hip replacement, hip or femur fractures, total knee replacement, cardiovascular and pulmonary issues, lower extremity amputation, neurological conditions (multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy), and other medical and debilitating conditions.
