Offering a unique, collaborative effort that pulls together the different disciplines to ensure that a patient's goal is met.
This type of stay requires a patient to stay at our facility overnight for a pre-determined length of time as dictated by Medicare/Medicaid or other private insurance. Patient progress and adherence to treatment may also impact a patient’s length of stay at our facility.
We offer outpatient services for patients requiring Physical, Occupational or Speech therapy services. If you have any questions regarding our outpatient services, please contact Carol Perez at 318-281-7737.
Rehab Certified RN’s
Our rehab certified nurses have acquired an advanced level of certification that validates professional standing as an experienced rehabilitation nurse with a documented level of knowledge and commitment to patient care. Our nursing department at Sterlington Rehab has over 100 years of combined experience.
Low/Patient Nurse Ratio
Having a low patient to nurse ratio allows more one-on-one interaction with our patients. This oftentimes leads to better outcomes as well as adherence to treatment.
FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation Of Swallowing)
A fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) test is a procedure used to assess how well you swallow. During the procedure, a speech-language pathologist (SLP) passes a thin, flexible instrument through your nose allowing the SLP to views parts of your throat as you swallow. FEES allows the clinician to identify the physiology of swallowing, to determine the safest and least restrictive level of oral intake, to include appropriate compensatory techniques, and to establish a dysphagia rehabilitation program.
Small, Home-like Atmosphere with Private Rooms
Our team works hard to provide patients with a great rehab experience. A great experience doesn’t exist without having a great staff to carryout day to day operations. We have very little turnover at our facility, and it is common for a patient to be cared for by the same team of employees throughout the duration of their stay.
Speech Therapy (7 days a week)
Speech Therapy (ST) provides services to individuals with speech, language, cognition, and communication deficits, in addition to, eating and swallowing disorders. This discipline strives to improve the patient’s overall quality of life through muscular strengthening for swallowing and vocalization skills, cognitive retraining, and modified technique training. Our speech therapists are certified in multiple specialized treatment programs such as:
-FEES Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing
Respiratory Therapy (RT) works under the direction of a physician to treat problems associated with the cardiopulmonary system. Our therapist works to ensure our patients are educated on the proper use of any BiPAP, CPAP, nebulizer, spirometers, and any other respiratory equipment during their stay at our facility.
Physical Therapy (PT) provides services to individuals that have sustained disabilities, impairments or limitations in their overall physical function and mobility. Their primary focus is to return patients to their prior level of functional independence by increasing muscle strength/endurance, balance, and overall safety awareness.
