Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation
Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals are facilities that specialize in the delivery of comprehensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation services to patients with complex medical conditions that compromises their ability to function normally. The kind of conditions usually treated at an inpatient rehabilitation hospital includes strokes, amputations, multiple trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Physiatrists, doctors that specialize in rehabilitation medicine, lead the rehabilitation team that usually consists of physical, occupational and speech therapists as well as case managers, social workers, nutritionists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals. Medlux Rehabilitation & Wellness partners with several acute rehab hospitals across the Chicago-Land area such as Van Matre Rehabilitation Hospital and LTACHs (Long-Term Acute Care Hospital) like Select Speciality Hospital in Wisconsin to provide them physiatrists and mid-level providers to lead their rehabilitation teams.
Sub-Acute Nursing Home Based Rehabilitation
Sub-acute rehabilitation refers to inpatient rehabilitation care delivered at skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Like acute rehabilitation hospitals, sub-acute rehabilitation programs include comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment teams, but usually at a lower intensity and specificity. A major difference between acute and sub-acute rehabilitation programs is that most sub-acute rehabilitation programs are not led by physicians who specialize in rehabilitation medicine. Medlux Rehabilitation & Wellness partners with skilled nursing facilities to provide physiatrist and physician extenders to lead and work with their rehabilitation teams.
Complex wounds often lead to severe debility and require management by physicians with special training in wound care.
