Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language therapy are provided to patients in the hospital who need assistance in recovering from injury or illness during a brief hospital stay.
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation
Glens Falls Hospital's Inpatient Rehabilitation Center is designed to maximize the independence of patients recovering from the disabling and debilitating effects of illness or injury. The goal of this program is to return patients to their homes at the highest possible level of functioning.
The Center is located within Glens Falls Hospital, providing close proximity to all of the services the hospital has to offer. Physicians are able to follow up with their patients while they are receiving rehabilitation services.
Our rehabilitation team offers personalized, comprehensive care to patients recovering from, but not limited to:
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain injury
- Major multiple trauma
- Hip fractures
- Degenerative neurological disorders
- Hip and knee replacements
Patients typically stay between five days and three weeks in our 15-bed Center, receiving approximately three hours a day of physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy to help them perform basic activities such as eating, dressing and grooming without assistance. Patients are expected to get up and dressed every day.
Our Center features semiprivate rooms with adapted bathrooms, a dual-use dining room and therapeutic kitchen, a welcoming lounge and visiting area, a day room featuring a computer with internet access for patient use, and a therapeutic tub and shower to mimic a home environment.
Our therapists utilize our therapy gym and an array of equipment and technology to help meet their patients' needs, including floor mats, parallel bars, a Nintendo Wii and a Lite Gait, which helps them gradually put weight on their lower extremities.
Our dedicated staff of highly skilled professionals includes:
- Physiatrist ( Medical Doctor trained in Rehabilitation)
- Rehabilitation nurses, 24 hours a day
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
- Speech and language pathologists
- Case manager
- Orthotic/prosthetic specialist
