Q
How is inpatient rehabilitation different from a skilled nursing facility?
A
The differences between inpatient rehabilitation and a skilled nursing facility are the level of medical care, the coordination of care, and the intensity of rehab therapies offered. Patients in an inpatient rehabilitation facility are seen by the physicians daily, the nurse to patient ratio is the same as in the acute care hospital, and each patient has a weekly meeting to set goals and plan for the return home.
Our Rehabilitation Hospital is a state-of-the-art hospital specializing in exactly the kind of care seriously injured patients need before returning to daily life and is located right here in Southwest Florida. This program is evidence of our commitment to bringing a whole new range of customized treatment programs to our local community.
If physical therapy is needed, an encouraging and passionate team of clinicians, therapists and nurses will help you challenge yourself and accelerate your path back to good health, benefiting from hours of training on the finest fitness equipment everyday.
For more complex rehab, we provide leading-edge technologies like the bio-feedback program, which enables you to watch a computer screen and play a game as you create new brain pathways at the same time.
Regardless of your specific needs, you can rest assured that an entire team of specialists will work together to create a care plan that caters to your goals and your needs, so that you can get back to what you love most as quickly as possible.

Q
My family member recently suffered a traumatic car accident and doctors have recommended inpatient rehabilitation. What can they expect in a typical day? Will we get to be involved throughout the process?
A
In inpatient rehabilitation they will be seen by their doctor and nurse for all their medical care. They will work with an occupational therapist each morning to get ready for the day, which includes bathing and dressing.
During physical therapy, they will work on strength and getting into a chair, standing or walking. In speech therapy, they will work directly with a therapist to address any swallowing or communication problems. If psychological therapy is needed, this service is also available.
Each and every day, they will be surrounded by a team around the clock who truly cares about them and wants them to get better, so that they can get home safely as soon as possible.
For more complex rehab, we provide leading-edge technologies like the bio-feedback program, which enables you to watch a computer screen and play a game as you create new brain pathways at the same time.
Family members are encouraged to be involved in their loved one’s care and attend therapy sessions. They can also stay overnight in their room on a bedside pull out bed. We believe that family members are an important part of their loved ones recovery and should be treated accordingly.
