Rehabilitation hospitals offer intensive rehabilitative care, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. You may require acute rehabilitation following a stroke, open-heart surgery, amputation of a limb, traumatic brain injury or other severe physical trauma. Your physician and discharge planner from The Valley Hospital will discuss with you and your family if care in a rehabilitation hospital is necessary.
Patients must be evaluated and accepted by a facility and approved by their insurance for rehabilitation placement. As an acute rehabilitation candidate, a patient must be willing and able to participate in three to four hours of vigorous physical and/or occupational therapy each day. They must also have a safe and realistic plan for discharge from the rehabilitation hospital to the community. Lastly, they must have the potential for continued improvement.
You and/or your family will be asked to choose several facilities to consider and your medical and insurance information will be referred to these facilities for evaluation. At the time of discharge, your discharge planner will coordinate the discharge with you and your family, your doctor, the facility and the insurance provider. Patients should be aware of their insurance benefits, as network providers and preauthorization may be required.
