Central Waitlist Coordination
Patients are moved from all WRHA hospital sites to either geriatric rehabilitation or specialized rehabilitation units in order to access the first available rehabilitation bed. The following process occurs:
- Consultation services at all hospitals place patients' names on the Central Waitlist when they are ready for rehabilitation according to the Admission Criteria (PDF, 201 KB)
- As rehabilitation beds open, patients are provided the opportunity to move from acute care to rehabilitation care via the Central Waitlist Coordinator.
