The Inpatient Rehabiliation Unit is a 60-bed unit providing expertise in amputee, stroke, acquired brain injury, orthopaedic and other disabilities. Rehabilitation is about providing an environment where patients can help themselves to recuperate from an illness, trauma or operation. The unit also provides an extensive geriatric evaluation and management service.
Patients are referred to the unit from within the Loddon Campaspe region, metropolitan and some southern New South Wales hospitals.
Upon admission, a team of health professionals conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify patient goals and establish the rehabilitation program plan.
Families and carers are recognised as an integral part of the rehabilitation program and are regularly invited to participate in the process and plan future management.
To achieve the best outcome for the patient, staff provide guidance, encouragement, emotional support and timely assistance for all patients and their carers, family and friends.
