Hi - I start nursing school in the fall, and am particularly interested in spinal cord injury. Are spinal cord injury patients stabilized in neuro ICU, and then sent to nursing homes? I know our local V.A. hospital has a unit for SCI, and it is basically their home. I don't see SCI listed separately under specialties, and want to know where these patients are treated at various stages of recovery/rehabilitation.
For those in the UK who are interested in spinal cord injuries, there is a list of spinal injury
These are NHS spinal injury units, and care for patients in both the acute phase of their recovery, as well as their rehabilitation.
