Title: Considerations for Adolescents on Adult Inpatient Rehabilitation Units
Presenter: Sue Harlow, OTD, OT/L
Date: September 12, 2019
Each year, inpatient rehabilitation units within adult facilities have adolescents referred to their programs. Some programs have strict age-based admission criteria that stipulate only 18 and above, while some others have a cut off of age 16, or even ages 12 and above. In many cases, we only admit a few adolescents a year. Units should ask ourselves, “Is our facility prepared to adequately address adolescent needs and issues to ensure optimal outcomes?” This webinar will help you answer that question.
- Define adolescence and developmental characteristics that may be expected from this population
- Discuss the standards of care by the World Health Organization for children and adolescents in healthcare facilities
- Describe key considerations when admitting adolescent patients into an adult rehabilitation unit
- Explain required CARF standards for inpatient rehab units with no pediatric specialty programs
