Physical and Occupational Therapy
Physical and occupational therapists in the acute care hospital fulfill multiple functions, including assessing skilled needs for postacute care, providing patient and family education about safe postdischarge activity, and delivering treatments that begin the rehabilitation process during progressively shorter hospital stays. Many patients with rehabilitative needs continue their therapy in a skilled nursing facility (SNF). Through Cleveland Clinic Connected Care, many local SNFs are partnered with the Cleveland Clinic Health System. Across all Cleveland Clinic hospitals and Connected Care SNFs, functional outcomes are assessed using the 6-Clicks Basic Mobility and Daily Activity short forms of the Boston University Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care (AM-PAC™).
