REHABILITATION CENTER INPATIENT SERVICES

At Maimonides, our inpatient rehabilitation service is hospital-based and provides acute rehab care across specializations. Our approach to evaluation, service, treatment, and education reflects the hospital’s overall specialization in heart, stroke, orthopedics (especially joint replacement and lower back pain), surgery, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, cancer, geriatrics, and pediatrics.

Rehabilitation Medicine provides a multi-disciplinary approach which includes: physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech/language therapy. Though most service is initiated by the patient’s main physician, all healthcare providers initially evaluate the patient and assist in the development of a Treatment & Care Plan. The plan’s main focus is on restoring normal function, and its goals may include any or all of the following:

  • reducing the level of impairment; 
  • reduction of pain;
  • optimizing physical abilities;
  • improving strength and endurance;
  • increasing mobility; improving range of motion;
  • balance and gait retraining;
  • improvement in the ability to perform activities of daily living (use of wheelchairs, walkers, crutches & canes; training in use of splints, support braces or orthoses and artificial limbs, prostheses)
  • maintenance of a good quality of life.

Most of the evaluation and treatment occur post-operatively, on a daily basis during the patient’s hospitalization. Overall goals of rehab therapy are provided to assist the patient in becoming self-sufficient in as timely a period as possible.
