Hey, new to this group. I’ve just accepted a position in acute inpatient rehab and should start in a couple of months. I’ve been reading as much as possible to get an idea of what to expect so I feel pretty confident there.

So my question to you already working rehab nurses is whether you know of any meditation/relaxation programs in the rehab setting?

There are numerous articles on the benefits. Just wondering if anyone has seen it implemented.

congrats for the job! the job involves lots of lifting, transferring.. it's just very physically demanding. Nursing skills involved: foley catheter, drawing blood, starting IV, transfusing blood, NG-tube, PEG tube, wound care and trach. 

It depends on your facility. My previous facility doesn't have meditation/relaxation program, but they have yoga once a week for one hour. Other than that, just regular rehab activities with PT, OT, or ST.

It will depend on the facility.  Some better inpatient acute rehabilitation facilities have meditation and mindfulness/reflection activities incorporated into a patient's care plan.  They also have doctoral prepared individuals that provide this form of therapy.  Good luck!
