Acute Care Services

Acute Care ServicesIf you've been admitted to Beaumont and have a loss of communication or ability to swallow, our speech and language pathologists can meet with you right in your room. We specialize in helping those with stroke, head injury and other medical conditions that affect communication. While in the hospital, your care team assesses your speech, voice, language, cognitive and swallowing abilities and establishes important treatments for you. We emphasize swallowing treatments to help you avoid aspiration when eating and increase your nutritional intake.

With an evaluation and treatment plan, your physician can prepare for proper discharge planning with referral to the appropriate outpatient, home care or sub-acute speech and language pathology rehabilitation program.
