NEW YORK (Mar. 5)
The United States Office of Vocational Rehabilitation has given a grant of $350, 000 to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University for a study of rehabilitation of hospital patients.
Officials of the medical school said the pioneer study was expected to help reduce lengths of hospital stays, to better prepare the patient for life outside the hospital and cut the costs of rehabilitation in terms of time, money and professional attention. A 37-bed ward in one of the teaching hospitals of the medical school will be used for the study.
