Team Conferences:
Weekly team conferences are held by the professional team to discuss:

progress and treatment plans
patient and family goals
education and trainings
plans for a safe discharge


Family conferences can be scheduled with the team members to ensure success of the treatment plan as well as family involvement during the rehabilitation process. Family participation helps in continuing the rehabilitation process even after the patient leaves our program.

An individualized assessment of equipment needs is completed by the team before the patient goes home. The patient's home environment is evaluated by the team as needed.

Internet Access:
Hays Medical Center patients and their families now have access to high-speed internet via three Wi-Fi hotspots. The access points are located in the cafeteria, surgical waiting room and ICU waiting room. In addition, two laptops are available for checkout for patients and family members during their hospital stay.
