Functional improvement is measured by the Functional Independence Measure (FIM). Eighteen different skills are evaluated. The higher the FIM score, the more a person can do for themselves. The functional status of our patients, on average, scored a 2.16 rating for daily improvement in skills learned from start of rehabilitative care through discharge. This rating is significantly higher than the national average of 2.02.
