Inpatient Rehabilitation

Work toward your therapy goals with a team of experts during inpatient rehabilitation at an Adventist HealthCare hospital in Maryland. Benefit from 24/7 dedicated care designed to help you get back to the activities you love.

Is Inpatient Therapy Right for Me?

Inpatient care may be right for you if you:

  • Can take part in three hours of therapy five days a week, or 15 hours of therapy over 14 days.
  • Have a goal to improve your overall mobility and function.
  • Need multiple visits with a multidisciplinary team of specialists, on-site doctors and/or registered nurses trained in rehabilitation.

Ask your doctor if you need tests or any procedures before you go to the hospital. This will help save time during the admission process.

What to Pack

  • During your stay we recommend you bring the following: A sweater, sweatshirt and/or coat
  • One pair of sneakers or rubber-soled, non-skid shoes
  • Shorts or short-sleeved shirts if you have or will learn to use an orthotic or prosthetic device
  • Sleepwear (pajamas, robe, slippers)
  • Four to five loose-fitting shirts
  • Four to five pairs of comfortable pants, shorts or sweatpants
  • Four to five pairs of socks
  • Four to five pairs of underwear

Tell your nurse if you bring an electric razor, radio or other electrical items so we can check them for safety.

  • Brush/comb
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Shaving cream and/or razor
  • Soap, lotion and/or powder

You’ll receive medications from our pharmacy during your stay. You won’t need to bring any medications from home. Talk to your nurse if you have any concerns about your medications.
