Medicare Therapists

I got a comment on a recent post where I talked about struggling about working with a geriatric population in a rehab hospital . Aine left a comment saying “But during my years in management, I supervised many therapists who struggled with the role of therapy in that setting. We used to divide ourselves into “medicare part A” therapists and “medicare part B” therapists. In other words, some didn’t feel comfortable or competent with the long-term population (med. B patients) and only felt effective with the med A patients (those in for short-term rehab before going home).”

I thought this was an interesting way of looking at it!

I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy and making sure a tornado doesn’t hit Memphis (it never does) while also working on my patient’s occupational profile, playing online, and eating pudding. Talk about multi-tasking?
