North Oaks Rehabilitation Hospital's Patient Outcomes Rank in Nation's Top 10%

North Oaks Rehabilitation Hospital has been nationally recognized as a 2014 Top Performer by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), performing better than 90% of the hospitals in the U.S.

North Oaks Rehabilitation Hospital patients were found to make greater improvements faster, according to UDSMR 2013 data. The study looks at how patients improve in activities like memory; caring for one’s self; eating, bathing and dressing; toileting and bladder control; and mobility, locomotion, navigating stairs and transfers (e.g. moving from bed-to-chair, tub-to-shower and wheelchair-to-toilet.) The facility was compared to other hospitals in our region and across the nation.

Patients who have had a stroke or other brain injury; surgery for joint replacement or other orthopedic or spinal cord injuries; or suffer from neurological disorders, arthritis or other congenital conditions often benefit from inpatient rehabilitation.

UDSMR is a not-for-profit organization affiliated with the University at Buffalo, the state university of New York. Facilities from all over the world use UDSMR’s measurement system to document how quickly and how completely patients recover when they receive medical rehabilitation. UDSMR provides the most comprehensive rehabilitation data in the industry and is the world’s largest database for medical rehabilitation outcomes.

This is the latest in a series of awards North Oaks Rehabilitation Hospital has received. The facility ranks among the top 3 percent of 22,000 facilities worldwide surveyed by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities; has one of only five CARF-certified Stroke Specialty Programs in Louisiana (and the only one along the I-12 corridor); and received the 2013 Guardian of Excellence Award? from Press Ganey Associates, Inc. for consistent achievement in patient satisfaction.
