Patients who are followed by their Mary Free Bed doctors are seen for periodic rehabilitation checkups in the clinic setting. Care in the Spinal Cord Injury Clinic is directed by their physiatrist and will involve other specialists, as indicated. Spinal cord injury nurses and therapists also monitor the patient's post-discharge status during these spinal cord injury clinic visits. This enables us to provide ongoing spinal cord injury rehabilitation management in addressing patients’ changing needs.
