Physical Rehabilitation Care Team
Each rehab. patient is assigned a coordinator who works closely with the patient, family and care team to provide a coordinated rehabilitation experience. Other physical rehab. team members may include: a doctor of physical medicine (physiatrist), physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, recreational therapist, a physician specializing in rehabilitation medicine, rehabilitation nurses and a rehabilitation neuropsychologist and chaplains.
We recognize that the rehabilitation process also affects the patient's family. Family support is an integral part of the recovery process and we encourage their active involvement. We also believe it is important for family members to understand their loved one's recovery process, so we offer educational, neuropsychology, and support services to assist families.
Transitioning to Other Levels of Care
After the inpatient physical rehabilitation stay, the patient may require services that are addressed at a different level of care. We assist with the transition to the next step in recovery. Follow-up treatment may range from skilled care, transitional living and home health services to outpatient care. A physiatrist monitors the patient at intervals that are appropriate to assess his health care needs. Typically 75% of inpatients are moved to a community living environment.
As part of CHI Health, a fully integrated healthcare system, patients have access to acute inpatient care and a comprehensive array of services including: sub-acute care, outpatient programs, orthopedic services, senior health services, home health, adaptive technology, driver's assessment and education, sports and leisure programs, support groups, aquatic programs that promote health and wellness.
Rehabilitation is an option and where you choose to go matters. Immanuel Rehabilitation Center produces a yearly report regarding our clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction ratings, program highlights, and services and technologies that are available, and more.
