LOS ( Blackerby, 1990) and enhance positive cognitive outcomes ( Spivack et al., 1992.)
2. Intensity of rehabilitation treatment of at least 5-6 hours a day over at least 4 months yields clinically better results than treatment of less than 3 hours a day for less than 2 months (Spivack et al., 1992).
3. Payment systems that arbitrarily restrict rehabilitation LOS without considering patients' admission functional status, or that arbitrarily restrict treatments without requiring a certain minimal level of treatment intensity, may limit patients' eventual functional outcomes.
