The people we serve in our Rehabilitation Center enjoy exceptional outcomes as compared to regional and national data. The major groups of patients we serve are:
- Orthopedics = 37%
- Stroke = 28%
- Brain Injury = 11%
- Amputees = 7%
- Spinal Cord and Neurological Disorders = 7%
The average length of stay is 12 days depending on severity of illness and diagnosis. Seventy-one percent of our patients return back to their homes after rehabilitation.
The functional independence measure for patients on discharge is higher than other comparative Rehabilitation Centers in the region and nation. This information means we achieve and exceed our rehabilitation goals for the people we serve. We are very proud of the outstanding results our patients achieve both, by their hard work and our excellent team of professionals.
As compared to other facilities we are below the benchmark with the National Database for Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) for pressure ulcers and restraints.
Patient satisfaction survey comments requested additional patient education channels on TV, a large key computer keyboard for the visually impaired, and a new process to keep our patients continually informed about their therapy schedule which we were able to successfully accomplish.
