Medical Review Team

Information for adolescents and young adults with acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury, or skilled nursing rehabilitation needs.

The Medical Review Team (MRT) ensures careful screening of any individual under age 22 for whom placement is sought in a pediatric nursing home or skilled nursing facility for long-term care, short-term care (90 days/year) and short term post hospital admission. Youth and young adults (ages 16-22) with skilled care needs, acquired brain injury (ABI), or traumatic brain injury (TBI) are also reviewed by the MRT for placement in pediatric or adult facilities.
