Look at the original quote: "Yes, home health PT has been ordered. I was just up at
dad's room and the PT person was there working with him. She mentioned
to me that the PT who comes out to dad's house could go over a "home
assessment" with us to determine what items we should acquire, etc for
safety and functional help purposes."
How and why does this situation exist? How many balls have been dropped over the years allowing PT to be elevated beyond OT in this situation?
This sentence puzzles me. When I look at the classes offered at the upcoming AOTA conference I do not see that many courses on UE . I see a lot of courses on emerging practice areas and occupation based treatments for all ages in all settings. That is what I see in my practice and at our state conferences also. Are we on different planets? I'm confused.
