Jorge Marzagao (COTA) Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant reviews safety items with patients prior to discharge home.
The therapy department reviews items like safety awareness, compensatory strategies, proper body mechanics, use of adaptive equipment, and more.
Jorge states “We review things that are going to help minimize the chance that they will have a fall when they return home.”
Each week a new group is presented with these strategies that will help minimize a fall. Often the group helps one another strategize about things that have worked for them as well.
This is just another way our exceptional rehabilitation team and program helps patients stay safe and healthy in their home.
