Rehab administrators answer questions regarding staffing/cross training. IPRC archives information collected by the Pediatric Rehab Administrator’s ListServ as a public service to the entire Pediatric Rehabilitation Community. All information is posted in summary format and has been de-identified. Search through past queries for responses to rehabilitation related questions.
1.Do you have staff that spend all, or almost all, of the their time seeing one type of patient (just NICU, just inpatient rehab, just burns)? If so, in what ways has it been beneficial and what have been the challenges?
2. If you provide both IP and OP care, do you have staff that just see inpatients? Just outpatients?
3. Do you provide weekend coverage? If so, how does staffing work for that? (for example, schedules Tuesday-Saturday, everyone required to complete a certain amount, just certain staff work weekends, PRN Staff?)
