Rehabilitation Nursing

Carolinas Rehabilitation NursesThe highly trained and skilled rehabilitation nurses at Carolinas Rehabilitation focus on human response to physical disability and chronic illness. Rehabilitation nurses have a mission to maximize function, health and quality of life for the patients and families they serve. A primary nurse and bedside nurses provide nursing care in the inpatient setting.

Primary nurses are expert rehabilitation nurses who assess, design, coordinate and evaluate the nursing plan of care. In addition, these nurses assess the learning needs for patients throughout their hospital stay. Our nurses consult with other professional team members individually and through formal team meetings.

Bedside nurses provide daily assessment, interventions and evaluation of the nursing and interdisciplinary plan of care. 

Our rehabilitation nurses optimize functional improvements in:

  • Bladder and bowel control
  • Respiratory function
  • Diabetic control
  • Nutrition
  • Hydration
  • Skin care
  • Pain control
  • Medication safety
  • Adjustment to disability
  • Disease process education 

In providing 24-hour care to patients, rehabilitation nurses are in a unique position for prevention and early detection of potential medical complications by reporting them to the physician.

Prior to discharge, the primary nurse and other care team members will discuss recommendations for nursing needs, suggest appropriate community resources and assist in planning for the next steps of the patient's recovery process. To ensure a safe discharge from our facility, a member of our staff will contact the patient to address any questions or concerns.
