About this report

The Functional Independence Measure (FIM™) instrument is a basic indicator of patient disability. This report shows the functional gain of Rehabilitation patients relative to their lengths of stay, by subtracting the FIM Score at the start of the patient's stay from the score at the end of the patient's stay, divided by the length of stay in hospital.

Note(s):

Data are lagged by one quarter. 

About functional independence scores

FIM™ is comprised of eighteen items, grouped into two subscales - motor and cognition. Each item is assessed against a seven point ordinal scale, where the higher the score, the more independently the patient is able to perform the tasks assessed by that item.

Target

As part of Statewide and/or National agreements, targets have been set for some key performance indicators. These annual targets are shown to enable comparative achievements to be illustrated.
