Newly Hired At Rehab Hospital
- 0Oct 15, '98 by MariI am an LPN, pursuing RN through Regents College, and have just been hired at a Rehab hospital so that I can be kept up to date on acute care. This is the closest I can get to acute care, since med-surg hospitals won't hire me. Would like to have an idea of what to expect in rehab nursing - work load, treatments, equipment, etc. Please e-mail me at [email protected]

Be sure to find out what their rehab goals are and support their progress toward reaching those goals, even the small ones. A little praise and encouragement goes a long way. Expect a lot of lifting and try to have one of the experienced rehab nurses give you some tips on transfer techniques.
