At the Regional One Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital, we believe patients and their support systems should be at the center of establishing and implementing their treatment plan. We take a collaborative approach to care and look to involve you and your loved ones every step of the way, so your medical and therapy care evolves with your needs and goals.

Admissions Criteria

We admit medically-stable patients who have a rehab diagnosis and who require supervision by a rehabilitation physician, 24-hour skilled nursing care, and ongoing physical, occupational and/or speech therapy. Other criteria include:

  • Patients must be able to tolerate at least three hours of therapy daily or 15 hours of therapy over a 7 day period.
  • Doctors, case managers, nurses or therapists may refer a patient following an injury or elective surgery.
  • Patients may self-refer.
  • Patients are not required to have a hospitalization prior to being admitted to the rehabilitation hospital.

After we receive a referral, an admissions nurse liaison visits the patient to discuss rehabilitation and a physician and nurse evaluate the patient’s medical needs. In coordination with the rehab physician, the admissions office can pre-certify insurance and help arrange admission. Patients who are admitted are expected to actively participate in and benefit from intensive rehab therapy and are required to have a viable discharge plan and destination.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital is unable to accommodate the following:

  • Ventilator dependent patients
  • Cardiac monitoring
  • Lack of nutritional support
  • PCA pump
  • Chest tubes
  • Airborne isolation
  • IV drip protocols excluding CADD pumps
  • Ejection fraction less than or equal to 10%

Your Rehab Journey

Your care starts with a meeting with our rehab physician, who will provide a customized care plan based on a full complement of services. Medical and nursing care is available around the clock to meet patients’ individual needs.

You will participate in a minimum of three hours of therapy a day at least five days per week, including mobility, exercise, activities of daily living, home management, community access, adapted recreational activities and education. Treatment programs incorporate caregiver training to help patients achieve goals, sustain gains and prevent complications after discharge. Patients have access to a fully equipped therapy gym, low-stimulation therapy room, and daily living unit featuring a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen to practice independent living skills.

Rehabilitation can be intense, and you may be tired. The intensity of therapy is required to get you home as quickly as possible and enable you to resume activity.

Meals are served buffet style in the rehabilitation dining room to promote socialization and give you a chance to meet friends and talk to others who may be facing similar challenges.

Every week, your medical rehab team will hold a conference, bringing together all staff involved in your care to discuss barriers to discharge, progress and educational needs. Family conferences are held throughout each patient’s stay to meet the needs of the patient and their support system and communicate diagnoses, impairments, activity limitation, etc.

When you are ready to graduate from your inpatient rehabilitation program at the Regional One Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital, our social worker and case manager will assist you with discharge needs including setting up follow-up appointments and equipment needs.
