Title: What Does My Spinal Cord Injury Patient Need?
Presenter: Kathryn Burke, OTR/L, MBA
Date Recorded: September 25, 2019
A patient comes into the ER from a catastrophic event, anything from a fall to a car accident. This patient has had a complete change in their life – They will no longer be able to do what they were previously able to do naturally, due to a spinal cord injury. Throughout their acute care stay, the consulting team deems them appropriate for an inpatient rehab stay at your hospital. Is your physician, nursing, therapy, case management and neuropsych staff prepared to treat this patient? Do you know what equipment will be needed for a patient like this? This presentation will provide you with the basics you will need in order to effectively treat a patient with a spinal cord injury. A checklist will also be discussed to make sure all areas that are vital to the patients survival and outcomes will be discussed.
- Create a basic foundation for evaluating and treating patients with a non-complex, low-level spinal cord injury
- Demonstrate the knowledge needed to provide education to patients with a spinal cord injury
- Compile a list of resources to aid in the evaluation, treatment and education in a patient with a non-complex, low-level spinal cord injury
