Occupational therapy is an essential part of the rehabilitation process. Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s Occupational Therapy staff utilizes activities of daily living (ADLs) such as dressing, bathing, and homemaking to evaluate and develop needed skills to maximize the patient’s function within his/her environment. Occupational therapists treat hand and arm injuries associated with trauma or other disorders. Splints and devices can also be recommended for patients that need assistance to utilize objects within his/her environment. Occupational therapists make up part of the team to treat infants and children as it relates to their development.
Our goal is to restore the patient’s functional independence to the highest possible level. Occupational therapists treat both inpatients, outpatients, and First Steps.
