Handbook, Guide or Manual (Third Edition)
Publication Date (Third Edition)
During your stay in the hospital, various pieces of equipment will be given to you or ordered for you. Your therapists or nurse will be instructing you in the use, care and repair of this equipment. Also, you will find materials in this section regarding specialized equipment that you may need during your hospital stay and following discharge. There are also reference materials about equipment you may need in the future.
If you have any questions about your equipment while in the hospital, contact your therapist, nurse or case manager.
As part of your follow-up program, equipment will be reviewed and re-evaluated from time to time. If you have questions about equipment after discharge, contact the SCI Follow-Up Clinic for a nurse clinician who will direct you to the proper source.
