The Benefits of Inpatient Rehabilitation
Following COVID-19 hospitalization

You may have heard of “Flattening the Curve” related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. There is another curve on the rise: the rehabilitation needs of patients following a COVID-19 hospitalization. Patients may have recovered medically, but a large percentage are experiencing long term complications and residual effects that need to be addressed by inpatient rehabilitation, so they may resume their previous lives prior to having COVID-19.

  • In this presentation we will discuss complications following a COVID-19 hospitalization that can be treated at LTAC or Acute Rehabilitation levels of care.
  • Residual effects experienced by patients following a COVID-19 hospitalization.
