At West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital we have an
easy friendly admission process for all of our patients, their families,
physicians, case manager, insurance/managed care companies and all other
Potential patients coming from an Acute
Hospital for the Inpatient program at WGRH should ask their case manager/social
worker where they are hospitalized or their treating physician for a referral
for acute rehab services at WGRH.
Referrals should be directed to our Inpatient Admissions Office. Once the referral is received, a clinical
liaison together with our Medical Director will review your need for rehab
services along with your insurance benefits.
The clinical liaison will then contact you to discuss the possible
admission to the program; since they visit each of their area hospitals on a
daily basis to meet with patients and families to discuss admission and help
secure the necessary medical approval.
admitted to the program, you will be fully oriented to the hospital’s rules and
regulations and overall process by the admitting nurse along with the remainder
of the rehabilitation team. Patients are
encouraged to bring articles of clothing that they feel comfortable wearing at
home, including footwear. Preferably
elastic shorts and pull over shirts. You
may also want to have a sweater or jacket as the hospital does have a tendency
to feel cold. You will also be
encouraged to send any valuables to your home.
Our goal is to coordinate a smooth transition to
our rehabilitation hospital as soon as the patient is medically stable and able
to participate in all of our specialized programs.
