Frequently Asked Questions
Where do parents/caregivers stay?
Each patient in the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (CIRU) has a private room with a sofa that coverts to a bed for up to two family members wishing to stay with their child.
What documentation is necessary for transferring your patient to Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit?
To ensure that your patient will receive appropriate and efficient medical attention up on his/her arrival to inpatient rehabilitation, specific documents must accompany the patient when he/she is transferred to our rehabilitation facility. A complete copy of the patient's chart should include: progress notes, M.D. orders, flow sheets, radiology notes, surgical reports, consults, MAR, CT films, MRI films, X-rays, discharge summary and transfer orders. If you have any questions, please contact one of our clinical evaluators.
How do I find out if a patient in our hospital is appropriate for your Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit?
Make a referral to one of our clinical evaluators by contacting 404-785-2274 or using our online referral form.
What does a parent need to bring for a child's inpatient rehabilitation stay?
Bringing personal items from home-such as books, photos or favorite clothes-can make a child more comfortable during his or her stay. We suggest bringing some personal care items, such as a comb or brush, deodorant, shampoo, soap and a toothbrush and toothpaste. The child should have comfortable clothing such as elastic-waistband pants, loose-fitting shirts, pajamas, socks, underwear, athletic shoes and a jacket or coat if needed. Each patient room has a safe to store electronic and personal items.
How do we get a patient to your hospital?
One of our evaluators will work with the case manager or referring professional to arrange transportation from your location to Children’s at Scottish Rite.
What if a patient in our hospital is not appropriate for your inpatient unit?
For patients whose status do not require inpatient rehabilitation, we also have the Day Rehabilitation Program which may be more appropriate for the patient.
