Care for patients with head injuries generally involves a two-week or longer period of residence at the BCOM for persons 18 years and older who are at tertiary level status. Patients are housed on all three floors of the BCOM facility, with 12-16 patients per floor receiving care and treatment by our professional staff 24-hours per day, 7-days per week.
Treatment for head injury patients focuses on issues such as anger management, impulse control, and dealing with depression.
The primary goal of the treatment program at the BCOM is to promote personal independence, thereby, enabling our patients to return to a normal daily life routine as soon as possible. We recognize that many head injury patients need some form of ongoing assistance beyond residential treatment like that provided by the BCOM. Therefore, we work closely with appropriate third parties throughout the admissions and treatment process to ensure a smooth transition after the patient’s discharge from the BCOM.
Hallmarks of our approach include:
Screening of potential patients to ensure the ongoing safety of all other BCOM patients
Creation of a unique treatment program for each patient, based on a sensitive, thorough admissions process
Formation of a treatment team for each patient, including doctors, nurses, activity therapists, social workers, and other technicians
Use of various patient groups, both to facilitate therapy and to encourage patient interaction
Medication to supplement a holistic treatment approach
Supplementing daily activities (e.g. crafts, exercise) with educational experiences, designed
to inform the patient about his or her condition and to promote progress after discharge from
