Inpatient Hospital Therapy

Inpatient occupational therapists may see patients with stroke, organ transplant, surgery, cancer, heart issues, falls, end-of-life care, fatigue, visual loss, concern for home safety, memory issues, among other reasons. Services may address activities of daily living (ADL), home tasks, fatigue management, getting out in the community, strengthening, home safety, cognitive retraining, using equipment, family education, taking medications, and taking care of one's own health. Occupational therapists work with the patient, family, and care team to identify further therapy, equipment, training, and other recommendations as part of a safe plan for returning home.
