Ward 2: Orthopedic rehabilitation
We treat adult patients from Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi. Patients are referrals from specialised medical care or an emergency department.
We mainly treat patients with fractures or some other injury, for example in a limb.
We have a procedure for rapid treatment of hip fractures; patients move home faster, in better condition and more pleased.
We support the patient's independence and focus on rehabilitation. Patients are encouraged to operate on their own and get help only when needed.
Rehabilitation is planned together with the patient by a multidisciplinary team, consisting of sufficient hospital staff. The team may for example consist of a doctor, nurse, practical nurse, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and a social worker. In rehabilitation we consider the patient’s needs and strength.
The patient is sent home when health permits. If needed, rehabilitation continues at home.
