Mayo Clinic Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation received the full three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities following the site visit in January. The final report was extremely positive and indicates a successful outcome.
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities surveyors observed strong multidisciplinary care delivery, extensive interdisciplinary collaboration and a strong patient focus.
In addition to many strengths, the survey team distinctly identified the Brain Injury Coping Skills program and the project between the Spinal Cord Injury team and Plastic Surgery to reduce pressure ulcers.
These initiatives were cited as exemplary, indicating these efforts are leading the field among the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities' national and internationally accredited programs. The number of recommendations that require action plans also reduced by more than 40 percent (eight versus 14), validating the work of the multidisciplinary team over the past three years.
Carmen Terzic, M.D., Ph.D., Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation/Cardiovascular Diseases, who is the chair of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, congratulates the collaborative team consisting of physicians, nursing, therapy, social work and allied employees.
