Inpatient Rehabilitation Units

For patients who require intensive rehabilitation, we offer inpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy in an 18-bed, all private room center at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and a 51-bed center at Medstar Good Samaritan Hospital with specialization in neurological disorders, spinal cord injury, orthopedic, amputee, and debility. Additionally, PM&R operates a 13-bed unit at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with specialization in geriatric and stroke rehabilitation.

Our Comprehensive Inpatient Integrated Rehabilitation Programs (CIIRP) are CARF-accredited and help patients prepare for independent living after they leave the hospital. The home-like setting allows patients the freedom to perform their own care with the guidance of a team of experts including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, social workers, rehabilitation nursespsychologists, dietitians, orthotists, and rehabilitation physicians (physiatrists).

Our inpatient rehabilitation programs include:

  • Daily team conferences to review progress and goals
  • Patient/family conferences to discuss ongoing needs and answer any questions
  • Family/caregiver training to prepare those caring for the patient at home

Your care plan

Our team works with every patient to create a care plan that identifies the patient’s abilities and needs and ensures the patient’s goals and concerns are addressed. We encourage family and friends to be involved in the patient’s care. Our nurses and therapists take time to make sure that patients and caregivers understand and are comfortable with their roles before leaving the hospital.

Patients will be evaluated by the Johns Hopkins rehabilitation consult team or the medical director and must meet the following criteria:

  1. Patient has functional impairments resulting from injury, illness, or developmental disease.
  2. Patient has rehabilitation needs in two or more functional domains (mobility, activities of daily living, bowel/bladder management, cognition, communication, swallowing, etc.)
  3. Patient has sufficient physical and cognitive capacity to participate in a comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation program and can tolerate at least three hours a day (or alternatively 15 hours per week) of therapy activity.
  4. There is a reasonable expectation that acute rehabilitation care will result in increased function and that a satisfactory discharge plan will be achieved.
  5. Patient is medically stable. i.e., patient’s medical conditions allow participation in a full acute rehabilitation program, and medical problems have been evaluated and determined not to interfere with patient’s potential to achieve rehabilitation goals.
  6. Patient and family agree to admission to inpatient rehabilitation and the tentative goals and length of stay.
