1 Senior Director, and Chief Nursing Executive Policy General Rehabilitation Page 1 of 7 The Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) recommends access to general rehabilitation beds in planning of care with individuals who would benefit from an interim step in their transition home following an episode of care in an acute care Hospital. The focus of this transition is an effort to reduce the risk of a hospital readmission. LHIN-Wide Approach The General Rehabilitation Program is a partnership between the Waterloo Wellington CCAC, acute care sites and general rehabilitation sites. It is a LHIN-wide program comprised of general rehabilitation beds located at: Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Centre (GRH FHC) St. Joseph s Health Centre (SJHC) Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH). Based on a LHIN-wide prioritization framework, individuals may be suited to a setting within the Waterloo Wellington LHIN. However, a location outside their home community may need to be selected according to the first available bed policy. As a result, a general rehabilitation setting available location may be any 1 of the 3 locations above. When multiple vacancy locations are available simultaneously, the geographic location (close proximity of the Patient/caregiver home) will be considered by the WWCCAC during the selection process. Any requests for exception will be considered with the General Rehabilitation program Manager. This LHIN-wide approach relates to all general rehabilitation settings. Role of CCAC Program Description The CCAC works with individuals in determining eligibility, site matching, coordination and access to the general rehabilitation program beds. This includes communicating program criteria, managing wait lists and managing program admissions in light of the LHIN-wide approach to care transitions. The purpose of the General Rehabilitation Program is to provides intensive, goaloriented rehabilitation for individuals living with stable medical conditions and require a level of nursing or medical care intervention not available in the home or community setting (refer to General Rehabilitation Program Description WW556 and Waterloo Wellington Rehabilitation/Transitional Program Framework WW555). Out-of-regional referral sources may complete an application. Program length of stay is determined by specific rehabilitation goals with a target ranging between 7-40 days in order that improved strength, endurance and/or function and safe transitions to the community can be achieved. The specific therapy service model includes: Occupational therapy (OT) and physiotherapy (PT) is 60 minutes per day (5-7 times per week) with a therapist and/or therapy assistant. Care plans are individualized and adjusted according to an individual s stamina and level of tolerance. Role of Discharge Planner An individual completing the application is responsible to complete the general rehabilitation application in its entirety. This individual may be a WWCCAC Care Coordinator (CC) or another health care professional who is working with the person (applicant) during the discharge planning process at the acute care hospital.
