  • Level 4 or higher on the 10-level Rancho Los Amigos Scale of post-injury cognitive function

Spinal Cord Injury

Patients with spinal cord injury, in addition to their acquired brain injury, may be considered for admission. Each case will be reviewed for approval to determine our capacity to provide care.  Guidelines for admission include:

  • Sacral, thoracic, and lumbar level injuries may be considered. Cervical injuries are typically beyond our capacity to serve
  • Not ventilator dependent
  • Does not require assistance with severe, frequent autonomic dysreflexia or in/out catheterization
