Cognitively impaired patients must have a family member to accompany the patient at time of the admission. If there are safety concerns, we will make arrangements for family members to continually stay with the patient to avoid using restraints. Persons qualifying for admission to the inpatient rehabilitation unit and their family members or caregivers are encouraged to tour the facility before admission.


What to Bring

Because patients are physically active in the inpatient rehabilitation unit, loose-fitting clothing is strongly advised. Patients should pack the following for their stay:

  • Comfortable pants/shorts
  • Gym shoes or comfortable footwear
  • Night clothes and robe
  • Personal grooming items
  • Shirts or blouses
  • T-shirts may be recommended for patients with neck and/or back braces
  • Sweatshirt or sweater
  • Undergarments

The patient’s family or caregiver is responsible for laundering the patient’s personal clothing. Patients’ garments, glasses, hearing aids and dentures should be labeled. Patients are advised to leave valuables at home, including jewelry, credit cards and cash. Rooms are equipped with televisions
and clocks.
All personal electrical items must be checked with the Maintenance Department before being used in the hospital.
The entire campus is a tobacco-free environment.

Commitment to Functional Outcomes

The team members of the inpatient rehabilitation unit are committed to quality patient care that is effective, efficient and satisfying. Program evaluations help the team assess patient outcomes in functional independence, length of stay, discharge to a community setting and the ability to lead a productive lifestyle.
Patients are asked to participate in the evaluation process, which includes the use of the Functional Independence Measure (FIM). This instrument serves as a national benchmark to document the severity of a patient’s disability and the results of medical rehabilitation. Through its use, clinicians are better able to monitor changes in functional status during the full range of patient care.
Patient satisfaction is a vital component of rehabilitation therapy, since a patient’s active participation in the treatment program can positively influence outcome. This functional outcome information helps improve services, evaluate the clinical management of patients and meet the needs of a diverse, multicultural patient population as we Rebuild Lives through Loving Care.
