The ability to navigate your home or workplace efficiently is important to one’s overall health. A home that was once safe can become a hazard to a person in a wheelchair or recently home from the hospital. Rugs or stairs that were once welcome accents to the home décor can become hard to navigate to person impaired by an accident or stroke. In the workplace, a mismatch between the worksite design and the person’s abilities can lead to unsafe and inefficient work practices and, ultimately injuries.
Our Occupational Health specialists are able to evaluate your work and home environments and develop a common sense rehabilitation plan for your areas of concern. If you are interested in more information about home and workplace Ergonomics and Occupational Health contact the Rehabilitation Center directly at 320-843-1340.

Have you been to the hospital lately for a stay, a lab test, or an appointment? You can now get your medical information online at a secure patient site called MyChart and it’s available ONLY TO YOU. MyChart will contain information such as: future appointments, lab results, allergies and conditions, current problems, a list of the medications you are taking, and your health summary. You can print the information for your files or send it to your physician or other health providers.
Here’s how you sign up for your private MyChart medical record site. Next time you come to the hospital, go to the SCBH Front Desk and fill out a Patient Portal Request form so we can make MyChart available to you. We will then e-mail you a password that will allow you to get into MyChart. You will be able to see your record and change the password to one you can remember. You also have the option to give your family member of legal ward access to your MyChart account by filling out a proxy form.
If you’d like to have the Patient Portal Request form mailed to you, please contact Michelle Nelson at 320-843-1317.
