2022 Stronger - PH352 - Physical Rehabilitation Program for Long COVID Patients - On Demand
Ellenville Regional Hospital, a critical access hospital in New York state, developed a physical rehabilitation program to assist long-COVID-19 patients with and without comorbidities in their recovery. The goal was to develop an evidence-based program to assess and treat patients with long-COVID-19. The program entails manual muscle testing, balance assessments, respiratory endurance and exercise tolerance testing. Patients are also aligned for care with other specialties as needed, including occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, respiratory therapy and behavioral health. This model can be replicated by other rural and critical access hospitals with limited resources.
