Inpatient Physiotherapy

Surgical Wards:

The team on these wards aim to hasten recovery and facilitate or maintain function and mobilisation, the patients undergoing a range of general surgery.

Intensive Therapy Unit:

Physiotherapists on the Intensive Care Unit work closely with medical and nursing colleagues to maximise respiratory function for those patients who are ventilated, but also to facilitate physical rehabilitation in the early stages of patients requiring ventilation and who are subsequently relatively immobile for this period of time.

Medical Wards:

On these wards, physiotherapists provide early intervention for patients with a range of conditions, including maintaining and improving peoples' respiratory function for patients who have been admitted with chest complaints, to mobilise and maintain function for those people who require assistance for their physical mobilisation and also to provide early intervention for the rehabilitation of patients with neurological diseases, particularly those who have experienced a stroke.

An on-call service for those patients with respiratory problems and rehabilitation of orthopaedic conditions occurs on weekends.
