Patient Information

Social Work / Case Management

The social worker/case manager assumes a leadership role in planning and preparing for the individual’s discharge from the inpatient program. Social workers/case managers help patients and family members deal with social, financial, and emotional aspects of the patient’s condition.

This planning and preparation begins when the individual is admitted to the inpatient program, continues during the inpatient stay and culminates when the team determines that the individual is ready to move to the next step in the rehabilitation process.

The social worker/case manager is also responsible for arranging for individual tutoring for adolescents when necessary to address the patient’s educational needs. A formal meeting with the family and caregivers is scheduled when appropriate and communication with the family and caregivers occur throughout the duration of the individual’s rehabilitation at Burke.

In addition, social workers/case managers serve as hospital liaisons with the patient’s insurance case manager.
