Acute care physical therapists play a critical role in helping patients recover during a hospital stay. No matter the reason for admission, the sooner that patients can start to get moving and regain functioning, the better. In fact, there is good evidence to support the idea that delivering high-quality acute care physical therapy can help hospitals lower costly readmissions among patients.
As a hospital leader, you undoubtedly understand that delivering acute care physical therapy is not without its challenges. Physical therapy is a highly specialized field, with its own set of unique care procedures, regulations and billing practices. This is why so many hospitals turn to a partner organization that specializes in delivering hospital-based acute care physical therapy services.
