PATIENT SAFETY & QUALITY
A Dedication to Excellence.
Your safety is our number one concern
Our patients can feel comfortable that our hospital environment is safe from harm and our team members are also trained to provide your therapy in a safe and efficacious manner using a number of techniques and technologies.
We assess individual needs
To assist our patients in navigating safely during therapy, we have installed non-slip flooring. In addition, your private bathroom has non-slip flooring and comfort height toilets as well. And for those patients who need additional traction, we have special socks that have extra gripping on the soles.
Our rehab team will assess each patient for their needs. When appropriate, our team utilizes technology that sounds an alarm on patients who should not move to different sitting or standing positions without assistance.
Our hospital has an advanced design which includes high air quality filters, video surveillance system of our facility, electronic door controls at entrances and other high security areas and increased visibility from our nurses to our patients which promotes a quick response to our patient’s needs.
To enhance and encourage communication between the patient, patient’s family and the rehab team, we have communication boards in each patient’s room and we chose an electronic health record technology that specializes in post-acute requirements which allows for real-time, interdisciplinary communication between your clinical team members.
Speaking of our patient’s needs, we have also installed an Advanced Nurse call-light system that has additional tools for your safety. Any additional communication needs can be met through our translation services.
San Antonio Rehabilitation Hospital promotes the highest level of safety and controls around medication prescribing, dispensing and tracking with computer-controlled and bar-coding medication technology.
