Inpatient therapy at Mount Vernon Hospital
Physiotherapists and occupational therapists work closely with inpatients for the following:
The Orthopaedic Therapy Team consists of occupational therapists and physiotherapists who assess and treat you if you have been admitted under an orthopaedic surgeon. This may be following planned surgery e.g. a hip or knee replacement, or after trauma involving broken bones. They work closely with other healthcare professionals to maximise independence and ensure you are safe to move about and manage activities of daily living e.g. washing and dressing.
If you have a planned hip and knee replacement, you will attend a therapy session before admission to hospital as part of the Rapid Recovery Joint School. Here you will be given information about your surgery and shown exercises to do after your operation. You will also be asked to provide information about your home to enable therapists to plan a safe and timely departure from hospital.
