Lourdes Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit earns CARF accreditation

September 30, 2013 

Lourdes Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit has received three-year accreditation from CARF International, an independent nonprofit group that accredits health and human services providers in several areas.

CARF surveyed the unit and found no issues, a news release said.

In the agency's announcement of the accreditation, CARF said, "This achievement is an indication of your organization's dedication and commitment to improving the quality of lives of the person's served. ... Please be advised that the CARF surveyors made no recommendations, which signifies that they did not identify any areas of nonconformance to the standards. This is an extraordinary accomplishment, as only three percent of CARF surveys result in no recommendations," the release said.

The nonprofit Uniform Data Systems for Medical Rehabilitation also ranked the inpatient rehab unit among the top 10 percent nationally for helping patients return to settings where they can function independently, the release said.
