Upon admission to the hospital, all patients will complete a comprehensive evaluation process. This evaluation includes physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as physician, nursing, neuropsychological and behavioral assessments. A treatment plan, established and agreed upon by the treatment team, patient and family will be in place within seven days of admission.
Patients will participate in individual and group therapy sessions on the unit, within the hospital and in the community, as appropriate to meet the individual's goals. The interdisciplinary team meets every two weeks to update goals, adjust treatment plans and notify the payor of progress. Families are updated on an ongoing basis and at a minimum of every two weeks.
