Description

Every patient at Fletcher Allen Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation is cared for by a team of rehabilitation experts. Our doctors, nurses and therapists have advanced training in rehabilitation, enabling them to customize a care plan for each patient’s unique needs. Our patients benefit from participation in acute rehab: intensive therapy five days a week and daily consultation with a physiatrist (a medical doctor who specializes in rehab).

As part of a university medical center, Inpatient Rehabilitation offers the latest technologies and research-backed treatments for a wide range of medical conditions – ensuring that every patient’s care is based on the most recent scientific knowledge. The conditions we treat include:

  • Stroke
  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Amputation (pre- and post-prosthesis)
  • Neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Guillian-Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis and Post-Acute Critical Neuropathy
  • Multiple Trauma with multiple fractures or Multi-system Trauma
  • Burns
  • Orthopedic conditions such as Hip Fracture, Bilateral Hip Replacement, and Bilateral Knee Replacement
  • A range of other medical conditions – contact our Admissions Office if you have questions about the conditions we treat

Our rehabilitation facility offers a comfortable 34-bed facility with private rooms. The program is individualized to the needs of the patient, and the focus is on helping people to achieve a level of independence to safely leave our acute care setting and continue his/her recovery at home or in some instances, at a subacute pace.

Our rehabilitation program is appropriate for people who require 24-hour physician availability, 24-hour nursing care, and the skill of at least two different therapies, and can tolerate at least three hours of therapy for five days a week.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
