    Inpatient Rehabilitation at Forrest General's Rehab Center

    Forrest Health offers inpatient rehabilitation services at Forrest General Hospital through a highly-specialized acute rehabilitation center. The Forrest General Rehab Center (FGRC) functions as a stand-alone rehabilitation facility, but with all of the added benefits of being inside the hospital such as access to labs, physicians and emergency care.

    CARF Accredited

    Forrest General's Rehab Center is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehab Facilities for the general adult population and also as a stroke specialty unity.

    The inpatient rehabilitation program ensures that patients get intensive rehabilitation at least 5 days a week. Our facility maintains a discharge home rate of 85 percent, meaning that when patients leave the hospital, they're going home with their highest possible level of function.

    Who Needs Inpatient Rehabilitation?

    Patients ages 18 and over recovering from these procedures or diagnoses may benefit from inpatient rehabilitation:

    • Traumatic brain injury
    • Spinal cord injury
    • Stroke
    • Orthopedic surgery
    • Neurological disorders
    • Multiple Trauma
    • Amputation/Joint prosthesis
    • Other medical conditions causing functional deficits

    Referral Sources include acute hospitals, LTACH, SNF and home referrals within and/or beyond the 19 county service area of Forrest Health. A referral for admission to FGRC can be obtained from any physician residing over the care of a patient. Each Referral is then reviewed to determine if the criteria is met for admission. We accept all insurances, however, benefits and coverage will vary based on the individual plan if the patient meets admission criteria. Prior authorization is required for most private insurance plans.

    What happens during a typical stay?

    Patients stay at FGRC average of 16 days. During this time, they work through an intensive program with a team of experts to reach their goals. The goals of each patient may differ based on the needs and wishes of the patient and family, but improving communication and swallowing, as well as regaining as much physical independence as possible are standard.

    One of the features of the rehabilitation unit is a transitional apartment, where patients will practice tasks such as cooking, laundry and other basic home skills, under the supervision of professionals.

    Families and Caretakers

    A team approach is important to us, and we believe families and caretakers are a big part of our team. Because they are the ones that will continue to assist with care after discharge, we hold family education and training sessions.

    Typically, after 5-7 days into the rehabilitation stay, we bring the family in to observe therapy, ask questions and give feedback. Once discharge is approaching, we do a hands-on family and caregiver training session to practice transfers and any other skills the caretakers will be assisting the patient with at home.
