Answer

Follow up with the rehabilitation team, including the spinal cord injury rehabilitation physician, physical therapist, and occupational therapist. These professionals are responsible for monitoring community and home integration and following improvements in the patient's strength, coordination, transfer, activities of daily living, and ambulation.

Follow up with a primary care physician to monitor posthospital medications and other laboratory tests.
