Inpatient Rehabilitation At CVPH Medical Center
When you are a patient in the hospital due to injury or illness, it is often difficult to maintain your strength and endurance. Some illnesses cause loss of function, such as inability to move your limbs or pain that prevents you from being active. Our inpatient Physical and Occupational Therapists can help!
Our therapists will evaluate you on the request of your physician and recommend a treatment based on what you were doing before your illness and on your current function. The plan will be tailored to your particular situation and need, including how many times a week we come to visit you.
Certain medical problems also lead to difficulty swallowing, speaking or otherwise communicating. Our Speech – Language Pathologists work with patients on being able to safely swallow food and liquids; on understanding and expressing language; and on regaining cognitive abilities lost. They perform video fluoroscopic swallow studies with the assistance of radiology.
The inpatient rehab team offers, in conjunction with CVPH nursing and case management staff, a free class for patients who are scheduled for a Total Hip or Total Knee Replacement. For details, call 562-7599 or visit the orthopedic services part of the website.
