The Day Rehabilitation Program has experience with various types of illnesses and injuries.
What does this data mean?
The graph shows the patient diagnoses in Day Rehab compared to the percent of patients with the same diagnosis at national pediatric facilities. In 2011, patients with brain injuries made up the largest 65 percent of our Day Rehabilitation Program patients.
Why is this important?
This is important because our patients have the team, environment and resources needed to reach a level of independence where they can begin to reintegrate into the community and return to school.
How does Children’s make sure we are giving high-quality care?
- We give complete care in a team-based approach. The team includes doctors, nurses, therapists, social worker, certified teacher and vocational rehab counselor.
- Our team has special training to help pediatric patients recover after serious pediatric conditions, such as brain and spinal cord injuries.
*Other includes any diagnoses that make up less than 3 percent of patients at Children’s or less than 3 percent of the patients in national pediatric facilities.
Diagnoses are reported by Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR) quarterly. UDSMR compares our Day Rehabilitation Program to other pediatric programs in the nation.
