CVPH’s highly skilled Inpatient Rehabilitation team provides the care our patients need to regain function and independence while meeting their person
At CVPH, we are committed to improving your quality of life by meeting your individual goals as you recover from serious illness or injury. Our team of physical, occupational and speech therapists will work closely with you and your physician plan to tailor a treatment plan that’s best for you.
Specialized Care Just For You
We offer both preventative and rehabilitative care that can help you:
- Maximize functionality
- Maintain or restore your strength and endurance
- Promote wellbeing
With your physician’s request, our therapists will evaluate you and recommend a treatment plan based on what you were doing before your illness and on your current function. The plan will be tailored to your particular situation and needs. A small gym located within the hospital may used in your treatment plan.
Certain medical problems also lead to difficulty swallowing, speaking or otherwise communicating. Our Speech and 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.
Our inpatient team works closely with the nursing and case management staff to prepare you for the next phase of your recovery. Whether it’s going home with some assistance, continued treatment at one of our outpatient settings or admission to a specialized facility, our therapists can help you get there.
Rehabilitation Services & Sub Acute Care
The Rehabilitation Services team plays an integral role in care of residents in the Skilled Nursing Facility and on the Sub-Acute Care Unit.
For patients in Sub-Acute Care, we tailor our treatment to what you will need to be able to do in order to be successful at home. We provide education for you and your family, so that you can continue to maintain your function at home.
For long-term patients, those who return a skilled nursing environment, we work to maintain the highest level of independence and quality of life while living in our facility.
Typically, the physical therapist will work with you on ambulation, leg strength, walking stairs, endurance, balance etc., while the occupational therapist will address your ability to do your self-care and other daily activities like dressing, bathing, toileting, folding laundry, kitchen activities etc. If you have problems with language or swallowing, the speech language pathologists will be included in the treatment plan.
