Clinical Outcomes for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients at Casa Colina
Casa Colina patients experience significant improvements in their physical abilities, including walking.
We use the Functional Gait Assessment to measure walking ability in patients with a traumatic brain injury. Upon admission, most patients are severely impaired and unable to walk. By discharge most patients are walking independently with only mild impairments. (Data collected between 1/2010 - 12/2010)
Casa Colina patients experience a significant decrease in the level of supervision they need, translating into increased independence and greater ability to return to their previous living environment.
The Supervision Rating Scale measures the amount of supervision one may need from a licensed professional or caregiver. On average when patients are admitted to Casa Colina with a brain injury they require
full time direct or indirect supervision. By discharge patients only require
part-time supervision. This allows more of our patients to return home and participate in community activities. (Data collected between 1/2010 - 12/2010)
