Inpatient Occupational Therapist - PRN

Inpatient Occupational Therapist - PRN
in Washington DC, Washington DC


Inpatient Occupational Therapist - PRN - George Washington University Hospital - Washington D.C.

POSITION PURPOSE:

The George Washington University Hospital’s rehabilitation unit offers individualized, medically advanced treatment and equipment for patients recovering from serious illness, surgery, trauma and other debilitating conditions.  Clinical expertise and respect for patients, as well as the encouragement patients achieve with their own progress, distinguish this program as a leader among its peers. 

Helping patients regain speech after stroke, teaching them to walk independently after a traumatic accident or returning someone to the activities of daily living — every patient accomplishment, whether small or monumental — are our greatest rewards.

Acute Rehab

The Acute Rehab Team at The George Washington University Hospital assists people who have experienced an illness or injury that limits their abilities to function. Our goal is to help patients develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible after leaving our facility. Acute rehabilitation consists of at least three to five hours of therapy per day, five days a week. Our contemporary, all-private 16-bed unit is located on the fourth floor of The George Washington University Hospital.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Center

A disabling injury or illness can create lifestyle changes and cause frustrating setbacks. Patients receive individualized therapy from highly skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapists, all in the comfort of more than 7,000 square feet of beautifully designed and naturally lit space. At GW Hospital, we focus on patients' abilities--not their disabilities--to instill the confidence they need to achieve their maximum level of independence.
