Hi everyone. I'm a nursing student and I found out yesterday that I was assigned to do my clinicals at a Spinal Cord Rehab unit of a hospital. I have never been to a rehab unit ever in my entire 3 years in nursing school and have no idea what kind of assessments you do for patients in a rehab unit. I did research last night but aside from neuro assessments I'm still clueless as to what I need to do for the patients.
Can anyone please enlighten me? I'm guessing since it's a Rehab unit it's an outpatient right? So what kinds of assessments are necessary for spinal cord injury patients? Is there a universal assessment tool available that all hospitals use? I need to make a time management tool but I'm having trouble making one since i dont know what you do in a rehab unit.
