To regain independence and quality of life - these are the priorities for you or a loved one after a stroke, or spinal cord, brain or orthopaedic injury. For those who qualify, research proves that individuals treated in acute inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), like WakeMed Rehabilitation Hospital, have better long-term clinical outcomes than those treated in nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).
The following information will help you and your family understand the benefits of rehab hospital care.
"I would like a referral to and evaluation by the WakeMed Rehab Hospital. The Admissions Department number is 919-350-7876 , and the fax is 919-350-8791." This request and information can prompt the evaluation you need to see if IRF care is right for you.
An evaluation is the only way the WakeMed Rehab team can determine if a patient qualifies for IRF care. For patients who do qualify, there is no better level of care available. The intensity of services - physical, occupational and/or speech therapy - they receive at an IRF maxmizes recovery, independence, and quality of life.
Even if your physician or discharge planner feels another level of care might be right for you, WakeMed Rehab Admissions welcomes the opportunity to do an evaluation to determine your eligibility for our program or to answer any questions about your post-acute care needs. Please call them at 919-350-7876.
