Patient care at the Institut Guttmann.
The Institut Guttmann is strongly committed to the quality and safety of the care it offers. All of our professionals work to make the care of patients and their families alike their number one priority.
The Institut Guttmann has the CSUR “Complex Spinal Injury” accreditation from the Spanish National Health System and is accredited by the prestigious Joint Commission International which certifies that it complies with international quality standards for health care and management; it is also committed to environmental protection and preservation with EMAS certification, and IQNet SR10, which certifies that all the organisation’s actions incorporate socially responsible management systems.
The Institut Guttmann Neurorehabilitation Hospital is part of the Spanish National Health System and has an agreement with the Catalan Health Service to care for beneficiaries of the Public Health System.
Likewise, the Institut Guttmann has established agreements with the main work-related mutual insurance societies, insurance companies and the biggest private healthcare organisations.
To continue treatment at the Institut Guttmann, the patient, their relatives or the hospital where they are admitted should contact the Admissions Service, presenting all available medical information.
After analysing the information received and assessing whether the patient has rehabilitation goals, the medical team will determine whether it is appropriate to continue treatment in the hospital and whether it should be through admission or on an outpatient basis. Patients with an injury in the acute and subacute phase, and especially those from Intensive Care Units, will have priority for admission.
If you are a relative of a person with a severe disability of neurological origin, who is in a critical or acute/subacute phase, you can request a transfer to the Institut Guttmann to start an intensive, personalised and highly specialised neurorehabilitation process.
The UNESPA agreement, which regulates the health care of insurance companies in the event of a traffic accident, establishes that the injured party (patient and / or their family) has the right to choose the hospital where they want to be treated and carry out their rehabilitation, such as the Institut Guttmann, a reference center in Neurorehabilitation of brain trauma and spinal cord injury.
To receive intensive neurorehabilitation treatment at the Institut Guttmann:
Send us all the medical information available or ask the hospital where your family member is located at the time to do so.
Our team will analyse the information and assess the rehabilitation goals to determine whether intensive treatment at the Institut Guttmann is appropriate and if it should be through admission or as an outpatient.
If the patient meets our admission criteria, we deal with everything needed for the transfer and admission, or for the start of outpatient treatment.
