What is Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation?
Acute inpatient rehabilitation is an intensive rehab program, usually based in a hospital, that helps people who are hospitalized from acute illnesses like stroke, hip fracture, amputation, heart attack, and more. Acute inpatient rehab care includes interdisciplinary treatment, on-site coordination, and treatment from rehab professionals with the training and understanding required to treat medically complex patients. Acute inpatient rehab minimizes the risk of hospital readmissions due to complications that may come up during rehabilitation treatment.
