Highlighting inpatient rehabilitation

Thursday, May 9, 2019 | Inpatient Rehabilitation

The 4th floor of the Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus is home to Inpatient Rehabilitation. The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities recognized the unit and its healthcare team for providing the highest-quality care, value and optimal outcomes for patients. The Inpatient Rehab unit is designed to help patients regain their independence in an environment that’s welcoming and restorative.

Treatment focused on you

Patients who are cared for on the Inpatient Rehab unit are seen for a variety of reasons, including stroke recovery, neurological disorders, spinal cord injuries, cardiac or pulmonary disorders, limb amputations, and traumatic injuries. The healthcare team works with patients to overcome physical and medical barriers to mobility, selfcare, communication, feeding, and disease management.

Services and a team built around you

Because the Inpatient Rehab unit is housed within Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus, patients have access to a host of medical specialists, wound care, pharmacy services, diabetes educators, dialysis, and diagnostic testing.

All patients are managed by a specialized care team consisting of a hospitalist who manages medical needs and a certified rehab physician who oversees the patient’s entire rehab process. And with the full gamut of rehab nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language therapists, and social workers working with patients, and rooting them on every step of the way, patients literally have a care team that is built around them.
