The mission of the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit of Broward Health North is to improve patients' quality of life through a progressive and integrated continuum of services that is respected within the healthcare community for excellence in patient care. Specialized services are designed to help patients reach their highest level of independent functioning.
The Unit is a self-contained 30-bed acute comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation unit located on the fourth floor of the medical center, with access to all Broward Health services. We are proud to be accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), the nation's leading accreditation body in the rehabilitation field and the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
While on the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, the interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists provide medical management, therapy, education and psychosocial support to patients with a variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions, survivors of traumatic injuries and stroke and those experiencing weakness and decreased self-care skills from other medical interventions. Upon admission to the unit, team members work collaboratively to complete an initial assessment, specifying the patient's individualized treatment plan, rehabilitation goals and projected discharge. The patient and family are an important part of the rehabilitation team. Participation in family training is highly encouraged to prepare for the patient's discharge home.
Evaluating a Patient's Progress and Care
The interdisciplinary team meets weekly to discuss and evaluate the patient's progress and discharge planning. Family conferences are also arranged as needed in order to review the patient's medical status, capability for independent functioning, rehabilitation goals and to discuss discharge needs including equipment, community resources and support groups.
Exceptional patient care and safety are priority goals on our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit. The program's leadership is available to assist you with any concerns.
