Who We Are & What We Do: Inpatient Multi Complicated Trauma

Inpatient Multi Complicated Trauma

The highly specialized Multi-Complicated Trauma Program at Children’s Specialized Hospital provides advanced critical rehabilitation care for children and adolescents from birth to 21 years, who have experienced major or multi-complicated trauma. The range of injuries sustained often include severe trauma to multiple organ systems, resulting in the need for comprehensive rehabilitation.

Patients admitted to the program following major and/or multi-complicated traumas, are offered an individualized rehabilitation program by an interdisciplinary team including experts in orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pediatrics, neurology, psychiatry/psychology, and other medical specialties. Additionally, during an inpatient stay, patients follow a plan of care specifically tailored to their needs. Each day, patients work with expert therapists specializing in the treatment of complicated trauma rehabilitation.

Our clinical teams are highly skilled in the rehabilitation of patients in need of:

  • Ventilator management and weaning
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Gastrostomy feedings
  • Total parenteral nutrition
  • Prolonged intravenous antibiotic administration
  • Catheter management
  • Wound care

Upon discharge, patients are guided by expert clinical staff of Children’s Specialized Hospital and referring acute care facilities on continuing the plan of care. Communication between medical staff and family is ongoing to monitor patient progress. If needed, education is provided for caregivers to ensure a seamless transition home.
