Stroke Programs

Our multidisciplinary team, led by a rehabilitation physician, establishes realistic goals with patients and their families for each step along the way of the rehabilitation continuum. Patients and their families are integral members of the team and participate in the development of the treatment plan. The goals of our program are individualized to maximize independence. Our program is designated to meet the individual needs of patients and their families from pre-admission to community re-entry. Care is available on an In-Patient and Out-Patient basis. Each patient’s care plan is continuously evaluated and adjusted as the patient progresses through the continuum of care.

Brain Injury Program

It takes time to determine how serious a brain injury is. Each injury is different depending on where the brain is injured, how much of the brain is injured, along with the amount of swelling that occurs.

Tests like CT Scans and EEGs tell the doctors about the damage to the brain. Tests however, can’t tell you about the length of recovery.

Orthopedic Program

Our program for orthopedic rehabilitation is designed to provide short-term, cost-effective care to restore mobility and return patients to productive lifestyles. Patients and their families are integral members of the team and participate in the development of the treatment plan.

Tests like CT Scans and EEGs tell the doctors about the damage to the brain. Tests however, can’t tell you about the length of recovery.

Things to Consider when Choosing a Rehabilitation Center.

  • 1. 3 M.D. visits a week are required by in an Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital. Skilled Nursing Facilities require 1 M.D. visit a week.
  • 2. An interdisciplinary team consists of a Rehab M.D., an R.N., a Social Worker or Case Manager, and a professional therapist involved in the care of the patient. Skilled Nursing Facilities require care conferences to be completed every 90 days.
  • 3. The attending physicians at Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Hospitals are specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMNR.) The attending in a Skilled Nursing Facility are only required to have a Medical License.
  • 4. Therapy disciplines are Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT), Speech Therapy (ST) and Orthotics/Prosthetics.
  • 5. To be licensed as an Acute Care Center the hospital must provide an acute level of Medical Care. A Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) does not meet acute care standards.
  • 6. The average length of stay in an Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital is 10-14 days compared to 30-45 days at a SNF. More than 85% of patients discharge back to home after rehabilitation at an acute inpatient hospital like Vibra.
