Inpatient rehabilitation

Information for the medical practitioner writing the letter of referral to inpatient rehabilitation.

At HNRC the provision of inpatient rehabilitation focuses mainly on children and adults with spinal cord and brain injuries. Our first priority is the patients who need intensive post-acute rehabilitation, i.e. people whose functional impairments and disabilities can only be improved by active team-based rehabilitation that cannot be provided through outpatient services.

All patients referred to inpatient rehabilitation should be in a stable overall condition: conscious, with stable hemodynamics, not suffering from acute inflammatory diseases, contagious diseases, or psychosis. The patients/their loved ones should be well-motivated to have the rehabilitation.

A letter of referral to inpatient rehabilitation should include the following information:

  • Diagnosis/diagnoses and the corresponding code(s)
  • Description of the condition underlying the need for rehabilitation
  • Conducted tests/analyses and their results
  • Epicrisis
  • Description of the current drug treatment
  • Registration number and contact details of the referring treating physician
