Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit
Our inpatient rehabilitation unit is the only CARF Accredited Rehabilitation Unit in the region. This accreditation recognizes our focus on quality outcomes for our patients. We provided one-on-one, quality care to our patients. You and your therapist will develop a plan to help you meet your goals. All inpatient rehabilitation patients receive a minimum of 3 hours of therapy at least 5 days per week in order to help you to achieve your goals.
As a rehabilitation patient at CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Hospital, you will be assisted by a team of rehabilitation professionals. A typical rehabilitation team includes a rehabilitation physician, rehabilitation nurses, a physical therapist, an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, and a case manager. These team members will assist you as needed, but will encourage progressive independence as you regain new skills. Practicing these skills will prepare you for discharge home. Family members and caregivers are encouraged to participate in your therapy sessions as they are key members of your rehabilitation team.
