Inpatient Rehabilitation Scope of Services

The inpatient rehabilitation program at St. Luke's Rehabilitation Hospital in Boise accepts all patients who meet defined admission criteria, ages 14 and above, that do not require ventilation assistance. The program is not able to accept patients between the ages of 14-18 that are under 40 kg.

Patients must demonstrate a need for assistance in executing functional activities and require services from at least two therapy disciplines (PT, OT and SLP), be capable of tolerating 3 hours of therapy a day, and must exhibit the ability to make functional improvement with therapy. Intended discharge environments are to the patient’s home/community setting.
