- If the patient has already completed a rehabilitation program, they may be considered for re-admission if the following conditions are met:
- The individual meets the general admission criteria.
- The individual has sustained a new event, injury, or change in function.
- The individual has rehabilitation goals that were not achieved but are currently feasible.
- The level of care required by the individual can reasonably be expected to be reduced by an intensive rehabilitation effort.
Every patient should have specific and definite rehabilitation goals documented on the treatment plan within 4 days of admission.
The patient continues to need an intense rehabilitation program with an interdisciplinary approach, which includes at least two therapeutic disciplines.
The patient continues to make progress towards stated goals and continues to tolerate at least three hours of therapy daily.
