A Typical Day
An Individual's typical day at Siskin Hospital will involve a personalized rehabilitation program to meet each patient's needs!
Although your schedule will vary based on your individual needs and tolerance level, this is a general overview of an inpatient’s typical day at Siskin Hospital.
You will be encouraged to do as much for yourself as possible, with the appropriate assistance from staff. Rest breaks may be scheduled during the day to help with your ability to fully participate in your scheduled therapies. The Rehabilitation Nursing staff may take the opportunity to provide education and training for you and your family during times that you are not scheduled for therapy.
Therapists and/or nursing staff will come to your room to help you work on daily living skills such as bathing, grooming, and getting dressed. You will be served breakfast and Therapy or Nursing will be present to assist and train patients who are having difficulty swallowing or feeding themselves.
The therapies ordered by your physiatrist will take place in the treatment gyms, in your room, or in various locations throughout the hospital.
Lunch is served. Therapy and Nursing are present to assist and train patients who are having difficulty swallowing or feeding themselves.
You will receive the remainder of your therapies for the day. You may also have time to rest in the afternoon.
Dinner will be served with assistance, as needed. After dinner, you will have time to relax, visit with family and friends, watch TV, read, or pursue other leisure activities.
You will also participate in therapies on the weekend, although they may be less intensive. As during the week, education and skill practice with your Rehabilitation Nurse may continue.
