Injury is damage to the body caused by external force. This may be caused by accidents, falls, hits, weapons, and other causes. Major trauma is injury that has the potential to cause prolonged disability.
Our health care expert provides a comprehensive system of care for patients, from the initial days after injury, through inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient treatment, all throughout follow-up. Our goal is to help patients return home as independent and prepared for the future as possible.
We are equipped to provide care for newly-injured patients and work with a wide range of acute medical issues. Our team is experienced in treating adolescents and adults with moderate to severe brain injuries, with all levels and types of medical, physical, cognitive, and behavioral challenges.
Our clinical team are experts in treating the early stages of recovery, we strives to maximize physical, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functioning and to prevent/minimize chronic disability.
We believe in empowering patients to fully participate in their program of care, from planning and scheduling to working hard to progress. There’s no passive-patient model of care. It takes teamwork, and the patient is the most important member of the team
The entire team focus on:
- Prevention of secondary complications
- Elimination of pain and suffering
- Maximization of physical functioning.
International Classification of External Causes of Injury (ICECI). Under this system, injuries are classified by
• mechanism of injury,
• objects/substances producing injury,
• place of occurrence,
• activity when injured,
• the role of human intent,
Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System are classified by
• part of body affected,
• source and secondary source, and
• event or exposure.
We follow a systematic approach in reducing the burden of injury and advancing prevention and treatment such as focusing pre assessment, restoration phase and implementing restoration and monitoring its effectiveness.
Our clinical care management also proposed six aims for improvement, and ten rules for redesign of the health care system, to make it safer:
- Safety – avoiding injuries to patients from the care that is intended to help them.
- Effective – providing services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit and refraining from providing services to those not likely to benefit.
- Patient-centered – providing care that is respectful of and responsive to patient preferences, needs, and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.
- Timely – reducing waits and sometimes harmful delays for both those who receive and those who give care.
- Efficient – avoiding waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas, and energy.
- Equitable – providing care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics such as gender, geographic location, and socioeconomic status
