Mercy Acute Rehabilitation Services
Inpatient Rehab Services
Acute Rehab is an intensive, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary approach to help patients achieve functional independence. As part of the service, Acute Rehab provides an acute level of medical care with 24-hour physician coverage and Rehabilitation nursing care.
Patients work closely with members of their treatment team, which is under the direction of a physician who specializes in rehabilitation, called a physiatrist.
Depending upon a patient's needs, the rehab team may include physical, occupational, and/or recreational therapists; speech/language pathologist; audiologist; psychiatrist; pastoral care; registered dietician; and a prosthetist/orthotist. Patients and their families receive assistance in creating a discharge plan to return home.
Pleasant Surroundings for You, Your Family and Friends
Mercy Acute Rehabilitation Services located at St. Charles Hospital offers:
- 18 private rooms with large private bathrooms
- An activity area where you can meet and mingle with other patients who face many of the same challenges you do. Or, you can gather there with family and friends
- Your family is strongly encouraged to participate in and assist with your daily activities and therapies
Planning for Your Future
A social worker will help you and your family create a discharge plan early in your treatment. If you need special equipment (wheelchair, grab bars, etc.) to function, it will be ordered and ready to go when you are discharged. Your residence may be evaluated for safety and accessibility before your discharge, and we will make recommendations for any needed changes.
