What Makes Rehabilitation Nursing Different

There are many definitions of rehabilitation. However, simply put, it is the process of returning patients to a maximum level of independence despite the severity of their injury or illness. The rehabilitation nurses possess unique expertise and are critical team members in our process.  HealthSouth’s rehab nurses help the patients regain control of their lives and their independence, treating complex medical issues and redefining how care is provided.

Rehabilitation Nurse:  Team approach

At HealthSouth, comprehensive rehabilitation is planned and administered by a highly specialized and integrated team including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, case managers and others. Rehabilitation nurses are a valuable resource and bring an important perspective to this interdisciplinary approach.

Rehabilitation nurses also use technical skills and knowledge to manage the needs of medically complicated patients. These specialized nurses are treating patients who are affected by stroke, musculoskeletal/orthopedic disorders, traumatic brain injuryneurological impairment, spinal cord injury, pulmonary disorders and associated complications such as incontinence, sleep disorders and pain.

Employee Spotlight

"I recently joined HealthSouth and feel my team has given me the opportunity to further develop my skills in addition to providing a challenging and rewarding work environment. I am specifically impressed with the effort HealthSouth makes to include the Corporate employees in understanding the mission and purpose of our business. For example, as part of my “on-boarding” process I was included in a tour of a local rehabilitation hospital which provided Corporate employees, like me, the opportunity to see that our work is meaningful and purpose driven. It reinforced the notion that at HealthSouth, no matter what your role in the company, we are all working towards the common goal of providing quality healthcare and returning our patients to their family and loved ones.”
