Tuesday, August 05, 2014 New Video: PTs in the ED You might've read about the value of physical therapy in a hospital emergency department (ED). But there's nothing like hearing from ED physical therapists (PTs) themselves. New on the APTA ED webpage—a video in which 5 PTs share their experiences and explain the value of physical therapy services in the ED. In the video the Arizona-based PTs from Flagstaff Medical Center, Mayo Clinic in Arizona, and Carondelet St. Joseph's Hospital in Tucson describe how PTs can respond to a range of presenting problems at EDs, and how the use of a PT in the ED setting can lower hospital admission rates—and costs. The video, produced and edited by APTA members Jessica Williman, SPT, and Michael Lebec, PT, PhD, joins a suite of APTA resources on PTs in the ED.
