Restorative Nursing Program

Posted

Does anyone know where I can get a Program/Rule book for Restorative Nursing Program in Texas? Trying to get started in my facility, but cant seem to locate rules. I have looked on CMS and DADS sites with no luck.

I am not sure where you would find the exact information you are looking for but the restorative programs that were in the LTC facility I worked at were driven by Physical Therapy, so perhaps a site that deals with PT info may be a good resource. From what I understood, these patients could be Medicare or Medicaid and have a need for continued therapy to prevent relapse from previously

treated conditions. IE: stroke pt who had recovered most of motor control now showing weakness of extremities etc.
