    Competent Care in New SCI Rehab Care

    ASIA (the American Spinal Injury Association) has pubished a new document describing standards for facilities that are providing acute inpatient rehabilitation care for persons with SCI.

    This can be used as a guide for identifying the correct place for your family member to go, and can guide your questions for case managers and intake staff.

    You can download the document here:

    KLD have there been any studies showing a increase in complications since the whole trend to shorter admissions and admissions to non specialised rehab?

    It may just be me but it seems that overall a lot of the "old timers" who had more extensive rehab seem to be in better shape even years post then some of the newer injuries?

    It's something I've been curious about, also wondering if there is information about rates of complications for chronic SCI patients by country?
