At Cueria Law Firm, we understand the severity of a spinal cord injury. We have represented individuals who suffered a spinal cord injury, due to no fault of their own, helping to file a claim and win compensation. When a spinal cord injury occurs, due to an accident or traumatic work injury, the individual can be partially or fully paralyzed. Medical treatment will be needed along with rehabilitation to be able to partially or fully recover or to relearn how to do things based on the current physical condition of the body.
When you have been subject to a spinal cord injury and need rehabilitation services, it is important to choose the right type of facility. It is not uncommon for a spinal cord injury patient to choose the cheapest alternative due to cost. However, your chance of recovered mobility or success in learning how to live in a paralyzed state will be dependent on the type of rehabilitation center you choose. When you have no experience in choosing a rehab facility, you will not know what features to look for to improve your chance of recovery. Below are a few tips to help you choose the right facility for your rehab needs.
Choosing the Right Rehab Facility
When choosing a rehabilitation facility after a spinal cord injury, it is important to research your options and ask the right questions. Some patients might have access to quality facilities, while others may have to travel further, even across state lines, to find quality care.
First, it is best to research facilities that focus on your diagnosis. You want to ensure that the facility you choose will have expertise in your area of injury. The track record of the rehabilitation center should focus on your specific injury with specialists on hand so that you can benefit from treatment.
It is also important to ensure that the facilities you are considering are accredited. A facility with accreditation in your specific injury will be the top choice for your rehabilitation needs. A facility with a Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission accreditation will indicate that the option is meeting minimum requirements for exceptional programs that focus specifically on the injury treatment that you need.
There are also staff considerations to be made. A quality rehab facility will have several members of staff that will provide a variety of services. An example of this will include a physiatrist. This will be a doctor who focuses on physical medicine as well as rehabilitation of patients. Rehab nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists should also be on hand to assist with treatment needs.
You want to ensure that a rehab facility has a full staff of professionals with the proper licensing and accreditations so that you receive the best care possible. The focus should be made on the type of therapy you need to be able to learn how to live with your physical condition or how to repair lost muscle memory or functioning.
Any spinal cord injury is going to require a form of rehabilitation. This can be costly and time-consuming. If you have been injured, you are not going to be able to work, which means only additional strain on your finances. If your injury was due to the negligence of someone else, it is important to seek legal action. File a claim for just compensation so you can receive the best care possible.
