Improving patient satisfaction — four ways therapy services help

February 5, 2020

Physical, occupational and speech therapy are service lines that play a key role in the recovery process for a wide range of conditions and injuries. In fact, the sooner that patients can begin receiving any necessary care, the better. This is why it’s so important for hospitals to offer therapy services to patients who are under their care. 

For hospitals looking to improve patient satisfaction, delivering high-quality therapy and rehabilitation to patients can have a significant impact. If you want to have a better understanding of the specific ways that your program can help your patients, we’re happy to share the following information. 

Here’s how therapy services can help patients

Hospitals providing high-quality therapy can enhance patients’ experience in the following ways: 

  1. Offers increased interaction with caregivers — Patients undergoing a hospital stay can benefit from the increased connection and interaction that working with a therapist can provide. 
  2. Promotes the healing process — Whether it’s getting the blood flowing and joints moving or relearning how to perform a basic movement, therapy helps patients be further along the healing journey when they are discharged. 
  3. Helps them feel in control — A hospital stay can come with anxiety and feelings of helplessness for patients. Receiving therapy can help people feel like active participants in their care. 
  4. Can lower readmission rates — Patients who receive physical therapy and rehabilitation can leave the hospital with a lower likelihood of costly and frustrating readmission. 

If you’re looking to maximize these benefits for patients, a dedicated industry partner can help take your hospital’s therapy program to a higher level of care.
