Providence St. Peter Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is a Nationally accredited, hospital based 18-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility. Our program is for individuals who require 24 hour nursing care, a physician to manage ongoing medical problems and rehabilitative therapies.
Common problems people may be experiencing prior to admission to our program include:
- Balance and coordination impairments
- Difficulty swallowing
- Difficulty moving in bed or from one place to another
- Difficulty performing daily activities such as eating, grooming, etc.
- Memory deficits and judgment impairment
- Speech or language problems in conjunction with physical limitations
- Inability to work or function due to physical impairment
- Weakness or limited motion in arms, legs or trunk
Inpatient Rehabilitation is geared toward a wide range of rehabilitation diagnoses including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury/surgery, amputation or a neurological or medically complex condition. The level of care you will receive in an inpatient rehabilitation setting is distinctly different from rehabilitation services offered at other facilities.
Inpatient Rehabilitation Admission
We accept referrals from physicians, nurses, other health provders and patients or families. When someone other than a physician makes a referral we will work with the patient's health care provider for approval to move forward with the screening process.
Interdisciplinary Team Planning
You are the most important member of our team. You will be supported by physiatrists, rehab nurses, care coordinators, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, recreational therapists, dietician, psychologist, a hospital chaplain and, if you like, your family.
