What is an Acute Rehabilitation Hospital?
An acute rehabilitation hospital is a hospital that provides care to a special population of patients, young and old, who, through illness or injury, have suffered a decline in functional skills, including the inability to walk. Most of these patients are able to return to the community and home with family after a short stay of 10 - 12 days. On average, 76% of the hospital's patients return home.
Conway Regional Rehabilitation Hospital is a 26-bed unit where the medical director and primary admitting doctor are board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation. The physician must round on the patients no less than three days per week, and in fact, averages five days a week and provides 24/7 medical coverage. All patients are seen by the physician within 24 hours of admission. The medical director works with an interdisciplinary team which consists of licensed therapists (occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech and recreational therapists), nurses, social workers, case management and dietary, all of whom are interactive with one another throughout the day. Acute rehabilitation hospitals are mandated to provide three hours of therapy per day at a minimum of five days per week.
Typical patients will include patients rehabilitating from hip and knee surgeries, strokes, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputees, major multiple trauma, congenital deformities, and burns. Services offered could include strengthening exercises, neuromuscular re-education, balance exercises, a driver re-education simulator and community activity, daily living training and patient and family education.
