Job Description

Scope of Position

Rehabilitation team members are licensed or certified professionals (physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, social workers or therapeutic recreation specialists) who work within a specific team structure to offer inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation services. These services are offered to the acute-care hospital, the acute inpatient rehabilitation facility (Dodd Hall), or outpatient service sites to patients who have disorders and conditions associated primarily with traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, or other neurogenic disorders, orthopedic problems, burns, amputations, or chronic pain. The rehabilitation team members report to the rehabilitation manager as part of the overall Rehabilitation Services Division structure.

Position Summary

Each rehabilitation team member is first a part of a group effort to provide care within a continuous performance improvement environment, and secondly a distinct professional who provides specific contributions to the team approach. Team members assess patients and establish together plans of care; provide a wide variety of treatment techniques; provide education and support to families; and facilitate continuing care planning. Team members evaluate quality of services and participate in outcomes management activities. Although team members report directly to a rehab manager, they are also responsible to each other, to those they supervise (rehab assistants and aides) and to other participants in patient care activities, including attending and resident physicians, nurses, their support staff, and Care Managers to assure coordination of services and programs. A team member embraces the Intensive Caring values of the organization and uses them to guide interactions with others.

The therapist will also provide specialized treatments to help the patient explore and identify productive avocational interests. Treatments include assessment of interests, introduction to various methods used to explore resources post discharge (use of the internet, identification of local organizations, methods to inquire about resources), exposure to local organizations, and education material to maximize patient post discharge planning. The SLP is expected to be the contact for the community link and be a liaison for patients/staff/consumers of Rehabilitation Services.

Minimum Qualifications

For Hire: All rehabilitation team members must be licensed and/or certified with the respective profession (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language pathology, social work, or therapeutic recreation), and meet the educational and/or certification requirements established by their professions (social workers and speech/language pathologists must hold master’s degrees, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and therapeutic recreational specialists must hold bachelor’s degrees).

All academic degrees must have been granted from an accredited institution. Speech pathologists must hold a license in the State of Ohio, and a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC/SLP).
