What do Coordinator of Rehabilitation Services do?

Say hello to a healthcare revolution. You’ve stepped into the role of Coordinator of Rehabilitation Services, and you’re ready to give physical, occupational, and speech therapy centers a makeover. The management of these centers falls into the Coordinator of Rehabilitation Services’ hands. This puts you in charge of training your staff, selecting equipment, and boosting patient morale.

The job of a Coordinator of Rehabilitation Services is like that of any Manager: It comes in several flavors. First is the top-level management. You research the latest technology and the safest, most effective treatment programs. Lifting light hand weights can help build muscle strength in the arms, while walking with crutches can be the best way to help a patient learn to walk again after a car accident.

For this equipment to help, you have to hire qualified Rehabilitation Therapists and offer frequent training so everyone follows the same protocols. On a limited budget, you may have to juggle patients between multiple staff members, and carefully schedule equipment usage for back-to-back sessions.

Then comes the paperwork. No day is complete without budgeting in the cost of remodeling the bathrooms or purchasing a new treadmill. To keep your patients happy and boost their chances of success, you take patient feedback seriously and work quickly to resolve complaints.

An organized business isn’t just about appearances. Through careful coordination, you provide flawless services to your patients and see to it that your staff has the equipment to do what they do best.
