Prior to discharge, your Mt Vernon Nursing and Rehab Center rehabilitation team will make sure you are ready for the challenges you will face when returning home or moving to an alternate level of care. Your therapists will provide you with a plan of exercises and guidelines for safely performing your daily routines. If needed, social workers will arrange for wheelchairs and other assistive devices.
Nutritionists may counsel you on dietary issues related to your optimum recovery, and nurses will educate you on wound care and medication management, if applicable. All of this important planning and preparation will ensure that upon discharge you will be equipped to successfully complete your recovery, resume everyday living and enjoy the fullest, most independent life possible.
As part of our critical discharge process we will coordinate the services of local health care and social service professionals with whom MVNRC has on-going professional relationships.
