Patient Satisfaction

Our rehabilitation unit contracts with MedTel, a nationally recognized benchmarking service, to survey patient satisfaction and outcomes. This survey allows us to compare our customer satisfaction results with other rehabilitation facilities around the country. Patients are contacted 90 days after discharge and are asked to rate our facility on a 1-4 scale with 4 being the highest rating

Functional Independence 

The functional independence measurement (FIM) is a nationally recognized tool that measures your ability to care for yourself. Areas measured include eating, grooming, bathing, toileting, transfers, mobility, bowel/bladder management, communication and cognitive skills. Total FIM change means the change in function from inpatient rehab admission to discharge. A higher score indicates increased ability to perform daily activities.
