The entire staff at Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital understands that if you’re being admitted for the first time to our Rehabilitation Hospital, you’re probably a bit apprehensive. This is a perfectly normal reaction. You may have heard that your experience will be challenging, and yes it can be, but it will also be one of the most rewarding—and that’s the bottom-line reason why you’re here. Before you leave our physical rehabilitation hospital you’ll learn new skills and ways of coping with the healing process and recover not only physical or cognitive abilities, but also the hope of greater independence by reclaiming activities for daily life.
Prior to admission, we will gather the necessary information and do everything possible to have your admissions paperwork complete when you arrive. You’ll also receive a list of things you should bring with you, such as clothing articles, medications, and personal belongings.
Once you’re admitted, we’ll do everything in our power to acclimate you to our hospital as quickly as possible so that you feel comfortable and secure. A nurse will show you to your room and help you get acquainted with your new surroundings and other staff members. You’ll be shown how to operate the remote control, call the nurses station for assistance, and other room features. You’ll also meet with a dietician to review your nutritional needs, medications, favorite foods, dislikes, and food allergies so that a meal plan can be developed especially for you.
