Preparing for Your Transition

Can my family physician or specialist follow me to RHI?

If your physician/specialist is not currently granted staff privileges at RHI, they are able to apply for temporary privileges.

How do we go about buying the needed equipment?

The discharge planners are the best resource for assisting you with these.

What kind of equipment will we need to buy when we go home?

Necessary equipment will depend on your progress and will be recommended by your therapists at the end of your stay. Your discharge planner will work with you to coordinate delivery of any needed equipment.

How will I get home from RHI?

A pending discharge date will be established by your treatment team based on your rehabilitation goals, progress toward the goals, and medical stability. Your RHI discharge planner will help coordinate transportation with you. Discharge is usually around at 10:00am.

When can I go home?

A discharge day target will be determined by a weekly conference including your physician, discharge planner, charge nurse and therapists.
