Inpatient Rehabilitation at Siskin Hospital couples intensive therapy with high levels of medical and nursing care in order to help patients regain as much independence and function as possible.
Siskin Hospital's Inpatient Rehabilitation Program provides 24-hour medical and nursing management and uses a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to establish long- and short-term goals specific to each patient and diagnosis.
The most common reasons why patients are admitted to a rehabilitation hospital include injuries, illnesses, or complications from:
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Neuromuscular Disorders, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, or Guillain-Barré Sydrome
- Musculoskeletal Conditions including multiple fractures, major trauma, and bi-lateral joint replacements
Patients experiencing these types of conditions frequently experience changes in physical function and mobility, speech and cognition, behavior and emotions, as well as personal independence, including basic self care skills.
Siskin Hospital's team of dedicated rehabilitation professionals are ready to work with patients and their families through a variety of physical, occupational, and speech-language therapies. The caring staff will help optimize recoveries and prepare patients to return home to their families, as well as to work, school, or pursue other enjoyable activities.
Individualized Plan of Care
While at Siskin Hospital, your rehabilitation team will work with you to establish YOUR rehabilitation goals. You will have an individual plan of care, developed just for you to insure your specific functional needs are addressed and met during your stay.
Your care is led by a physiatrist – a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Learn more about Siskin Hospital's expert team of Physiatrists.
Your Physiatrist will guide a team of experts including rehabilitation nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, nutritionists, case managers, and a variety of other clinical staff. Together this team works with each patient and their family member to provide the most comprehensive rehabilitation care possible.
Our purpose is to help patients reach and surpass their goals for therapy. That is why we conduct frequent evaluations and make adjustments to the therapy plans and goals as the patient progresses.
Typically, inpatient therapy consists of three to six hours of therapy per day during the week, two to four hours of treatment on Saturday, and the option of additional treatment on Sunday for many patients. Learn more about a patient's typical day at Siskin Hospital.
