Admission to the San Juan Regional Rehabilitation Hospital is not dependent on any specific diagnosis. Each patient's medical information, needs, ability to perform daily activities and potential to improve are considered. However, one must meet admission criteria.
What to bring:
• Three or four sets of loose, comfortable, washable clothing, underclothes and, if desired, nightclothes
• T-shirts, sweatshirts, and elastic waist pants or sweatpants that work well for exercising and easy dressing
• If you normally wear button-up shirts, skirts, zippered pants or overalls, bring a set of these to practice these dressing skills
• A pair of comfortable, sturdy, walking shoes that stay on well (these don't have to be tennis shoes)
• Eyeglasses, hearing aids, or dentures if you use them
• Electrical appliances such as electric razors, tape decks, and radios may be brought, but must be approved by the facility before you use them here

Since rehabilitation can be very tiring work, visitation hours and the number of visitors may be limited to allow needed rest time.
Children of all ages may visit but they must be supervised at all times. Those under five years of age should keep visits to one hour or less. Pets with written proof of current vaccinations are also allowed to visit with prior arrangements made through nursing. Pets must be well behaved, house broken, and properly restrained.
Visitors are not allowed to stay overnight.
Medical Debt Assistance Program
Some individuals may have enough income to pay for basic living expenses but can't pay for unexpected or large medical bills. San Juan Regional Rehabilitation Hospital offers a Medical Debt Assistance Program (MDAP) that may help cover all or a portion of the cost of your rehabilitation hospitalization based on eligibility criteria.
For information on the Medical Debt Assistance Program, ask your case manager at 505.609.2660 to assist you. Or, contact our billing office staff at 505.609.2838. You may inquire before admission, while you are in the hospital, or even after you have been discharged.
Your rehabilitation team will work with you and your family to estimate how long you would benefit from staying in the program. Training will be provided for you and your family members so you will be able to function safely in the home and community. Your team members will coordinate times for training and practice. The case manager will help arrange for the care you need after leaving, such as home health care, outpatient therapy, doctor's appointments, etc.
Before your discharge, equipment may be recommended for you to use when you go home. This may include a wheelchair, walker, bath bench, grab bars, or long handled bath sponge. Your therapists will help you decide what you will need. Some items may not be paid for by your insurance. If they are not, your case manager and therapists will talk with you about your options.
It is best not to buy equipment or start remodeling until you and your caregivers have talked with your therapists
