Outcomes for Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Pediatric Unit
At Good Shepherd's inpatient rehabilitation facilities, we are dedicated to getting you home quicker and with more functional independence than other rehabilitation facilities in the region and nation. Below is a glimpse at our most recent patient outcomes.
The following data was collected between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 .
*The higher the WeeFIM Score Change number, the more improvement the patient has shown
NOTES: The WeeFIM instrument measures the severity of disability in terms of the need for assistance. Children the age of three have the lowest change in WeeFIM scores related to their developmental age dependence. Infants are 26.3% of the GSRH Pediatric Unit's admissions, compared to 11.8% regionally and 12.7% nationally. To date, no instrument is able to capture the minor changes in infant growth and development in the inpatient rehabiliation setting. But the benefit of GSRH Inpatient Pediatric's programs for infants are that the caregiver burden is decreased while important foundational skills are aquired.
