Team Approach to Care

Rehabilitation Nurses
Rehabilitation nurses specialize in treatment 24 hours a day and are the foundation of care.

Nurses provide ongoing assessments of patients' needs, coordination and implementation of care, re-evaluation of interventions and education on many topics, including medications and managing healthcare needs after leaving the hospital.

Your rehabilitation nurse will also work with the rehabilitation team to reinforce mobility goals outside of therapy sessions.

Attending Doctor & Nurse Practitioner
During your hospital stay, you will be taken care of by a team of professionals. Our goal is to get you back to living your life.

Your team includes an attending physician and nurse practitioner who are experts in rehabilitation medicine. Your team also includes other specialists such as a Renown Hospitalist if necessary.

A nurse practitioner will also work in collaboration with your physician to provide general medical management, including assessment, diagnosis and treatment.

At the time of discharge, you will be referred back to your primary care physician and other physicians as indicated.

Dietary Specialists
You may ask to see a registered dietitian at any time during your stay.

We treat certain medical conditions with dietitian-supervised meal plans. The goal is to reduce complications in pre-existing conditions and alleviate the effects of any existing condition.

The role of the dietitian is to ensure proper nutrition and provide diet education for your health and well-being.

Medication may be an important part of your treatment plan.

Taking medications might help you manage pain, feel better, control disease or prevent complications. Your pharmacist will work with you to ensure optimal health.

Weekly classes are available where you can speak to your pharmacist about medication management and any concerns you might have.

Case Management
Team conferences are held weekly to provide professional coordination with oversight of progress toward goals.

Your case manager coordinates your care by working with you and your family regarding discharge plans from Renown Rehabilitation Hospital. The case manager also serves as the liaison between your family, physician, treatment team, insurance carrier and community agencies.

Upon discharge, you will be referred back to your primary care physician for your medical needs and your case manager will arrange additional physician referrals. A copy of your discharge summary will be sent to your primary care physician.

Once you are discharged, you will receive a follow-up phone call from the Case Management Department to see how you are doing with your therapy, medications and home care. They can also answer any questions you may have.
