Inpatient Rehab Jobs in NM
Using an inpatient rehabilitation program means staying in a facility until the completion of treatment.
The length of stay can vary from a few days to a month or more, depending on individual needs. These short-term programs may be offered in stand-alone rehabilitation hospitals, specialty hospital emergency departments, or skilled nursing facilities. Persons admitted to inpatient rehabilitation facilities receive comprehensive rehabilitation care through a multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists, whose activities are closely coordinated and led by a doctor.
