Touro Rehabilitation Center’s (TRC) General Rehabilitation Program are the services offered and provided on our M9 unit for all patients with the exception of patients with Spinal Cord Injury. TRC’s General Rehabilitation Program provides rehabilitation services that are guided by our mission statement of being committed to excellence in providing compassionate, family-oriented rehabilitation services. We improve the quality of life for adolescents and adults by enhancing function, increasing independence and facilitating community re-entry.

The General Rehabilitation Program provides inpatient rehabilitation services for patients with the following rehabilitation diagnoses:

  • Stroke
  • Congenital Deformities
  • Amputation
  • Major Multiple Trauma
  • Fracture of Femur
  • Joint Replacements
    • Patients who underwent bilateral knee or hip joint replacement surgery during the acute hospitalization, immediately preceding the IRF admission;
    • Patients who are extremely obese as measured by the patient’s Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 50 at the time of admission to the IRF; or
    • Patients considered to be “frail elderly,” as determined by a patient’s age of 85 or older at the time of admission to the IRF

Rehabilitation services are provided to patients in the General Rehabilitation Program on orders from the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Specialists who recommend and provide clinical care specific to a patient’s diagnosis and any other underlying medical conditions. PM&R physicians evaluate every patient to identify and order those services needed to overcome barriers to function. Services include rehabilitation nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, therapeutic recreation, counseling and case management. The treatment team may also include dietitians, respiratory therapy, pastoral care and other necessary healthcare personnel. Rehabilitation treatment plans of care are goal directed based on needs identified by the rehabilitation team, as well as those of the patient and family.
