Rehabilitation Nursing

Make a difference in someone’s life – that’s what the Rehabilitation nurses at Frazier Rehab Institute strive to do every day.

Frazier Rehab Institute nurses assist individuals suffering from chronic illness and disability, helping them to reach their maximum potential, both physically and psychosocially.

Rehabilitation nurses work with disabled individuals and families in a holistic manner with a goal of helping them become more independent and productive, while also meeting their medical, educational, psychological and spiritual needs.

Rehabilitation is not a phase of treatment or work setting, but a philosophy of care. Rehab nurses base their practice on rehabilitative principles by:

  • Managing complex medical issues
  • Collaborating with other rehab specialists
  • Providing ongoing and intensive patient/caregiver education
  • Setting goals for maximal independence
  • Establishing plans of care to maintain optimal wellness.
