Inpatient Rehabilitation vs. Skilled Nursing Rehabilitation

How FirstHealth Compares

Rehabilitation within a hospital provides treatment that is overseen by specially-trained rehab physicians and nurses. The inpatient rehab team works together to develop a coordinated plan of care designed to meet each patients medical and rehabilitation needs. In addition, rehabilitation physicians and nurses must be available on a 24-hour basis, and a physician must see the patient regularly.

The multidisciplinary care provided by inpatient rehabilitation hospital physicians, nurses and therapists is unmatched by other health settings.

Rehab services are offered in other health settings, such as nursing homes, however there is no physician-on-duty requirement, no requirement for an interdisciplinary team approach or no minimum requirement for the amount of therapy provided.
