Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a Level I Trauma Center. Patients on the trauma service may have sustained numerous injuries to multiple parts of their bodies, including orthopedic and neurological injuries that require an inpatient rehabilitation stay. Most patients sustaining multiple trauma are referred to physical therapy for a comprehensive assessment. Typically physical therapists help these patients with getting in and out of bed and walking, exercising weak or damaged limbs, and assisting in clearing airway secretions. Physical therapists work closely with the entire medical team to optimize care and return patients to home as soon as possible.
