The High Intensity Admission Guidelines provides an overview of admission criteria at the three sites that offer specialized inpatient ABI rehabilitation (Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital – Sinai Health, Toronto Rehab – University Health Network, West Park Healthcare Centre – University Health Network) as well as a glimpse of their available resources to manage a patient’s medical needs (e.g., bariatric equipment, dialysis, wound care, etc.).

ABI Inpatient Eligibility Criteria

For use by: acute care hospitals who are repatriating patients with an ABI

The ABI Inpatient Eligibility Criteria document assists hospital staff in determining whether a patient meets the eligibility criteria to be considered for inpatient ABI rehab. Also included within the document are two additional resources: Rancho Los Amigos Scale and Tips for Managing Challenging Behaviours in Inpatient Settings.

Early Notification Form

For use by: acute care hospitals who are repatriating patients with an ABI

The ABI Early Notification Form should be completed for patients with an ABI where the patient is expected to benefit from inpatient ABI rehab, but is not yet rehab ready and repatriation to their home hospital is being planned. This form will be used by the ABI Network to track and follow up on repatriated patients. Once the patient has progressed to rehab ready status, a full inpatient ABI rehab referral must be completed by the patient’s current care team.
