Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital’s Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program treats patients with traumatic or non-traumatic brain injuries of any severity. Patients who are just emerging from coma (Rancho Level II or higher) may be admitted to Madonna’s long term acute care hospital (LTACH) level of care. Those who have already emerged from coma, and those with moderate to mild deficits, may participate in Madonna’s outpatient program. Madonna is one of 8 organizations in the US who are accredited in both Brain Injury and Pediatric Specialty Programs.
Madonna's Brain Injury Program provides: physical, occupational, speech, respiratory, recreational and nutritional therapies; rehabilitation psychology; case management; social work services; spiritual services; and orthotics/prosthetics as needed. Additionally, rehabilitation nursing and access to a physician with training in physical medicine and rehabilitation is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week on an inpatient basis.
Madonna provides training and education to family members and other patient support systems. Families/support systems are involved in creating a treatment program and in developing a discharge plan. Most brain injury patients are discharged to a community setting. Some patients will need additional time in a more structured residential setting upon discharge.
