Unit Scope

Our entire facility serves as a dedicated 40-bed unit (six private and 12 semi-private rooms) focused on restoring, maintaining and promoting optimal patient health. The patient population ranges in age from young adult to geriatric. The average length of stay is 11 days.

A low (1:5) nurse/patient ratio enables the UF Health Shands Rehab Hospital team to provide quality inpatient and outpatient care. We encourage our nurses to achieve CCRN status through hospital-funded prep courses and exams. It is key that we have the knowledge and expertise to assess, plan, implement and evaluate patients’ physical and functional response to treatment for the following conditions:

  • Traumatic/non-traumatic spinal cord/brain injuries
  • Cerebrovascular accidents
  • Orthopaedic conditions
  • Major multiple trauma
  • Amputation
  • Burns
  • Neurological conditions (multiple sclerosis, Guillan-Barre syndrome)

Graduate nurses are welcome to join our team and provide preceptor and didactic training during their first six weeks. We also offer on-site in-service education, free CEUs and BLS training to promote advancement.
