Quality and Outcomes - Amputee Program
In 2019, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital (SRH) amputee program served 129 inpatients. Of those patients, 31% were female, while 69% were male. The average age of our inpatients was 62.9 years. Our patients received around the clock specialty rehabilitation-focused physician and nursing care and a minimum of 15 hours of skilled therapy each week. On average, our patients remained inpatient at SRH for 16 days.

Satisfaction with your experience at SRH is a high priority for us. We measured the quality of our programs by asking patients how satisfied they were with their overall care, how willing they were to recommend SRH to others, and how prepared they felt to function at home once discharged. SRH is proud to report that in 2019, over 98% of our amputee patients rated us with excellent scores in all three measurements. SRH is committed to seeking ongoing feedback from our patient in order to continually improve our patient care.

While we help patients find their strength during the inpatient hospitalization, we are also able to see that many of our patients continue to make progress even after discharge. Based on measures of patients’ functional status collected at different intervals, our data collected shows continued progress with their mobility and ability to perform activities of daily living. We also see that a very high percentage of patients remain in a community setting after discharge from Spaulding.
