Sanford Rehabilitation Center
Rehabilitation nurses specialize in the nursing needs of patients who have suffered musculoskeletal injuries or disease, head trauma, spinal injuries, and neuromuscular diseases such as Parkinson's disease.
The goal of the nurse is to help the patient regain independence to get back home and be comfortable in the ability to live as independently as possible.
Sanford Health nurses work a partnership model. A registered nurse and a nurse assistant work together to give 24-hour care to patients. Dedicated to being the best, many of the nurses at Sanford Health's Rehabilitation Center are Certified Rehabilitation Nurses.
The home-like surroundings of the patient rooms start patients on the road to independence. With the help of their nurses, patients practice what they learn in therapy.
Designated to help with recovery, the day room has tables that come down from the ceiling. This allows easy wheelchair access during meals and activities.
Social workers help evaluate community and family resources. They provide discharge planning and provide referrals to agencies and resources. They also aide with financial issues.
Social workers provide weekly reports to the patient and family members and are available to set up family conferences with the physician.
A positive attitude is important when recovering from an illness or injury. Social workers can help ease problems, provide support, and improve the quality of life.
Good nutrition is a key factor in helping the rehab patient get stronger. With good eating habits, muscles can work harder and nerves have a chance to heal. Sanford Health strives to help patients attain or maintain a level of health that helps in the process of recovery.
The dietitian in rehab assesses each patient's nutritional needs and sets up a plan of care. The dietitian attends weekly staffing sessions on each patient. The patient's diet is adjusted as he or she moves toward independence. The dietitian works with the family or other long-term care providers on the patient's nutritional needs when they leave the rehab center.
