The Rehabilitation Institute's Inpatient Rehabilitation Program offers both acute and subacute physical rehabilitation services for adult patients. These services are designed to minimize the handicapping effects of physical, emotional, social, vocational and communication impairments due to disability, accident or injury and to maximize the potential for independence and enhance the quality of life for our patients. You can contact Inpatient Rehab at 770-219-4175.
Patients in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Program have functional disabilities in one or more of the following areas:
- activities of daily living cognition
- pain management
- bowel or bladder control
- emotional functioning
Acute rehabilitation patients require the coordinated efforts of several rehabilitation specialties and typically participate in approximately three hours of therapy per day. Subacute patients require a less intense program and may need only one rehabilitation service daily or a combination of services over a period of time.
Patients must be medically stable and have the ability to participate in therapy activities. The patient also should have an appropriate support system and discharge plan.
Diagnoses typically seen in inpatient rehabilitation include:
- brain injury
- neuromuscular disorders
- spinal cord injury
- arthritic conditions
- hip fractures
- joint replacements
Referring a Patient
To make a referral, call 770-219-3835. An intake coordinator will schedule an on-site evaluation at no charge. If the patient meets the admission criteria, arrangements for admission will be coordinated with the referral source. If the patient does not meet admission criteria, the coordinator will make recommendations to other appropriate resources.
Many health insurance plans will reimburse much of the cost of inpatient rehabilitation. The program staff and our financial counseling department will determine insurance coverage prior to admission and assist the patient and family.
