General Medicine Outcomes*
January 2011 – December 2011
Riverside Rehabilitation Institute is committed to providing the highest quality rehabilitation to our patients so they can experience the best possible results. We seek to improve who we are and what we do every single day. The result is an unparalleled rehabilitation experience for our patients and their loved ones.
- 66% of our patients admitted for general debilitation are discharged back home, rather than to another facility.
- During their stay at RRI, patients usually progress from needing a moderate amount of help to needing only a minimal amount of help with tasks such as bathing, dressing, walking/wheelchair use and ability to understand.
- We have delivered improved functional abilities, even as our patient population has displayed more serious and more complicated conditions.
- Patients experiencing general debilitation stay an average of 13 days at RRI, which matches the national average.
- General rehabilitation patients are admitted to RRI an average of 22 days after their injury.

*RRI outcomes are measured using Functional Independence Measures (FIM), a standard tool used nationally to asses patients' ability to perform certain tasks. FIM scores at admission are compared to FIM scores upon discharge to measure progress in key areas, such as self-care and communication.
