The Inpatient Lower Extremity Amputee Program at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital is proud of its clinical outcomes, as well as the high level of patient satisfaction.
In 2013, we served 67 individuals with lower extremity amputation in our program. We realize that it is important to our patients to return home to their loved ones as soon as possible. The average length of stay for our patients was 14.3 days which compares very favorably with other inpatient lower extremity amputee rehabilitation programs in the nation and the region. Average treatment hours per day total 3.2.
Over the years, Sunnyview has consistently discharged a high percentage of individuals with lower extremity amputation back to their home and community. This was also true during 2013 when 76 percent of our patients returned home to continue their lives.
The Inpatient Lower Extremity Amputee Program is also proud that individuals and their families are pleased with our efforts. The patient satisfaction surveys portray how our patients rate our program and if they “Would Recommend This Facility” to family and friends. Although we want each and every one of our patients to be completely satisfied, we understand that not everyone will. We are pleased that 96 percent of individuals served by the program would recommend Sunnyview to family and friends.
We love what we do and we are honored to assist individuals with lower extremity amputation and their families to reach their desired goals.
