Your brain is extremely complex. When it’s damaged as a result of illness or injury, the damage can interfere with your ability to think and move. It can also cause behavioral changes that affect your emotions and personality. The rehabilitation teams at Sutter Roseville and Sutter Rehabilitation Institute use current, proven treatment methods to bring about the best outcomes for you.
If you’ve had a traumatic brain injury caused by an accident, fall, or blow to the head, the inpatient services at Sutter Rehabilitation Institute within the hospital are designed for you. SRI also works with patients who have experienced nontraumatic injuries, including teens and adults who have experienced brain bleeding or prolonged oxygen loss. Our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and is the only accredited brain injury program in the region for adults and adolescents. We generally accept adolescents age 17 or older, but will consider those 15 to 17 on a case-by-case basis.
Many of our brain injury team members are certified brain injury specialists, as designated by the Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists. Our dedicated team includes a rehabilitation physician, rehabilitation nurses, a neuropsychologist, social worker, case manager and physical, occupational, speech and recreation therapists.
In addition to our experienced rehabilitation team, we have the region’s only dedicated unit designed to meet the special physical and behavioral needs of patients who have sustained brain injuries. The self-contained unit allows freedom of movement within a safe environment, including smaller, quiet therapy and dining areas where you can work with fewer distractions. Several of our rooms have video monitoring capabilities to ensure your safety without compromising privacy. We offer specialized one-on-one coaching as needed to ensure safety. We also offer advanced robotic rehabilitation technology with the ZeroG® body-weight support system. All of these qualities allow our teams to create your individualized treatment program, capitalizing on your strengths and offering a safe environment for recovery.
Community Services and Follow-Up Clinic
Inpatient rehabilitation is only the first step of the rehabilitation journey. As needed, our team will refer you to follow-up services, home or community-based rehabilitation or outpatient therapies.
After you leave inpatient rehabilitation, you can also take part in the Follow-Up Clinic offered by Sutter Rehabilitation Institute doctors.
During Follow-Up Clinic days, a doctor, neuropsychologist or rehabilitation specialist can check on the progress of people who recently left the inpatient program. This clinic provides a continuum of care for our patients.
