Our Brain Injury Specialty Program has been CARF accredited since 2015. Our program uses evidence-based practice to promote the best level of care. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan with the patients and families being an integral part of the process. Initially, each family participates in an evaluation and planning meeting to discuss the needs of the patient, the treatment program and discharge planning. Throughout the rehabilitation stay, the patient’s progress and discharge planning are discussed at a weekly interdisciplinary team meeting.
Patients receive an average of 4.4 hours of treatment per day from physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, recreational therapy and psychology.
The program coordinates with other services, including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuropsychology and Trauma Services.
Upon discharge, further support is available from Cincinnati Children’s resources including school intervention, home care, outpatient services and Brain Injury Clinic.
