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.

Outcomes Report 

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.
