Inpatient services admission

  • We accept referrals to both the inpatient and outpatient programs from physicians, social workers, nurses, therapists, discharge planners, insurers, case managers, individuals with spinal cord injuries and family members.

    When a referral is received from an Abbott Northwestern or United Hospital unit, one of the physical medicine & rehabilitation physicians on the staff will see and assess the person's ability to participate in everyday activities, identify their rehabilitation needs and determine if they are appropriate for an inpatient stay.

    Referrals from other local, out-of-state and greater Minnesota hospitals or facilities are assessed, using the same criteria, by a member of the admitting department's clinical liaison team. These assessments are done by phone or onsite. If an inpatient stay is recommended, the admission staff will work with the insurance company, referring facility, patient and family to arrange for the admission.

    If an inpatient stay is not deemed appropriate, then recommendations are provided by the assessing physician or nurse practitioner.
