A pre-admission screening must occur to determine if your loved one qualifies for comprehensive rehabilitation. Patients are admitted from home, hospitals and nursing homes. A physician will work with the social worker or home health agency to determine if a referral is appropriate. Once we have received the referral, the rehabilitation team will review the patient’s history and potential to determine appropriateness for the unit. The decision is based upon medical stability, ability to participate in an intense therapy program, potential for significant functional improvement, level of functional dependency due to recent injury or ongoing physical disability and the need for daily physician intervention and 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care.
The comprehensive rehabilitation team is responsible for the final decision. A decision is usually made within 24 hours of the referral. Once the decision is made for possible admission, the liaison nurse will assist you with insurance and financial information. The comprehensive rehabilitation center accepts most major insurance carriers, including Medicare. Benefits will be verified prior to admission.
