Occupational therapists primarily serve in a consultative role in the Intensive Care Units (ICUs). They perform comprehensive initial assessments and monitor and reassess their patient's progress as appropriate. Often they are consulted to manage the positioning of patients' upper extremities, which can include the fabrication and fitting of custom splints.

An occupational therapist is available on a part-time basis to provide consultation to infants and their parents in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Level III NICU. Their role is to perform Developmental Assessments and to recommend strategies to both nursing staff and parents that will encourage normal infant development. This occupational therapist works closely with a part-time physical therapist as part of the rehabilitation consult team.
