Primary Children's Hospital Inpatient Rehabilitation Program is committed to outcomes management and performance improvement. By collecting data and tracking outcomes we are able to continually assess, analyze and improve upon the extraordinary care we provide.
The WeeFIM II® System (Functional Independence Measure for Children) is a nationally-recognized tool that records the progress made by the patient. It is the most respected pediatric outcomes management tool on the market and measures skills related to eating, dressing, bathing, bowel and bladder, toileting, mobility and cognition. We analyze the data obtained to help us improve our program and benchmark against other inpatient rehabilitation programs.
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation at Primary Children's Hospital
Children and adolescents admitted to Primary Children’s Hospital Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation improve in function
more when compared to other facilities, and we accomplish this with a shorter length of stay. In 2017, we were able
to admit more medically complex patients, including patients with tracheotomies and ventilators as well as patients
receiving dialysis or radiation therapy. Compared to other facilities, we discharge a significantly higher percentage of
patients to their home and community.
Average Days in Program
Fewer days in the hospital is better for patients and families.
Patients Discharged to Home
Getting families back home is best for everyone.
