SAMC offers an intensive acute inpatient rehabilitation program to help patients regain independence to attain the goal of returning home. Inpatient rehabilitation requires the coordinated efforts of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists for patients receiving 24-hour coverage by clinical staff skilled in medical rehabilitation.
The inpatient rehab team helps each patient establish goals for more independent living including improved mobility, self-care and speech skills. Team conferences are held weekly to share progress, concerns and update treatment goals. In addition, patient and family/caregiver education is provided on an ongoing basis.
