Inpatient rehabilitation provides you the intensity and level of care necessary to overcome the physical challenges you are facing or start you on the road to recovery. To help retrain nerves, muscles and joints to talk to each other again – or in new ways. To encourage your body to master small tasks that are critical to everyday independence – getting out of bed, grasping a fork and knife or driving a car. To assist you in reaching new heights and developing new skills.
Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) are designed for the comprehensive rehabilitative care of patients with functional, occupational or cognitive disorders. As the pre-eminent and leading-edge inpatient rehabilitation program in the Kansas City area, we have cared for patients for more than 20 years.
For your convenience, our network offers unmatched quality care at two Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities:
Because our inpatient rehabilitation facilities are located within major medical centers, we provide immediate response and access to medical specialists – if necessary – as well as the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies. It also means we meet hospital standards regarding patient safety, hygiene and quality.
During your hospitalization a Rehabilitation Specialist and/or Physiatrist can make recommendations regarding your need for ongoing physical and cognitive needs and help you identify your goals for maximum independence. If the goals you and your Rehab Specialist and/or Physiatrist have identified are best achieved in an inpatient rehabilitation environment, an admission to our facility can be arranged.
An inpatient rehabilitation facility requires your active participation in a combination of therapies designed to help you reach optimal wellness. Expect to spend three hours a day, five days a week in physical, occupational and/or speech therapies depending on the plan of care you and the rehab team have developed.
Throughout an inpatient rehabilitation stay, you will be participating in a variety of activities and therapies, and you should be as comfortable as possible. Since your plan of care may include practicing to dress, wear your regular clothes while on the unit and during all therapy sessions. We recommend you wear pants instead of dresses or skirts. We suggest you bring the following items with you:
- Lightweight, loose-fitting clothing (five-day supply)
- Supportive shoes (smooth rubber-soled shoes preferred)
- Personal toiletries and laundry bag
Your plan of care is built around your personal goals and abilities. The doctors, nurses and therapists will collaborate with you to develop an individualized plan of care. Weekly team conferences will review how your plan of care is progressing and if any of your goals have changed.
If there is a family member, friend or caregiver who should be part of your plan of care and treatment team, please let the rehab team know so that person may be included in necessary therapy to help you transition from inpatient rehabilitation to home.
Your daily schedule will include several or all of the following therapies:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
Your schedule will be available daily and may change from day to day. Sometimes it may start before breakfast, but it will always be completed by dinner time. Practicing what you have learned in therapy sessions will help your rehabilitation progress. Your nursing staff will assist you in this follow-up practice. Upon completion of the day's activities, you can expect to be tired. In the evenings you will find time to rest, relax and visit with your family and friends.
