The therapeutic services of Reem Hospital are intended to promote the healthy progress of patients' mental health and their emotional, psychological and social development. Our emphasis is on improving the health of patients through personal care, counseling, therapy, and provision of health educational information. Health practitioners at Reem Hospital work closely with patients in hospital facilities and interact with both in-patients and out-patients.
Reem Hospital’s personnel have been well trained to encourage clear good practice of therapeutic services in the hospital community and to advise on how to implement these in the home setting by training patients on the application of particular techniques and methods. Our healthcare therapeutic services are varied and include Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Psychologist, Physio, SLP, Dietitian, and Respiratory.
Our nurses are specifically trained and certified to provide rehab-specific care. They are specialized in caring for patients with specific diagnoses and are skilled in helping patients achieve their greatest potential and level of independence. Our nursing team also includes registered nurses (RN) and licensed practical nurses (LPN).
Our physical therapists are specially trained to work with the patient on mobility skills, strength, balance, flexibility and coordination. The physical therapist and physical therapist assistant work to improve your strength, balance, coordination and your ability to get around. Your therapist will teach you to safely get in and out of bed, in and out of a chair, to walk, to use a wheelchair, if necessary, and to transfer in and out of your car.
Our occupational therapists are specially trained to work with the patient on self-care skills, including activities of daily living (ADLs), strength and coordination. The occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant work to improve your ability to complete everyday tasks on your own. This includes feeding yourself, bathing, dressing, getting in and out of a shower or tub, making a meal and home management tasks. Your therapist will make suggestions for special equipment and teach you different ways to do things to help you perform the activities safely on your own.
The speech/language pathologist works with you to improve your ability to communicate verbally, and to teach you methods to improve the process of eating and swallowing, if these have become impaired. Speech therapists also help patients with short- and long-term memory problems, decision-making and judgment. Your therapist will make recommendations relating to improving or enhancing these areas of concern.
Our orthotists measure, design, fabricate and fit braces and other orthopedic-type appliances the patient may need.
Each patient works with a registered dietitian who will make sure our patients are getting the appropriate caloric intake needed to support their rehabilitation.
Our psychologists specialize in health and disability management and assist with the psychosocial adjustment after an illness or injury. The psychologist works to ensure your mental and emotional concerns are addressed. Treatments for the patient can help with adjustment to losses, recognition of deficits and their implications, understanding the effects of the injury on relationships with others, improved self-esteem, self-acceptance and effective goal setting.
Respiratory (breathing) care may be a part of your treatment. It is instrumental in the evaluation, treatment, management, and preventive care of patients with cardiopulmonary problems.
