      One of the questions on practice exam 3 asks about discharge status in a TBI patient with regards to their FIM?
      Since FIM does not have specific cutoff how do we determine discharge location? In the question pt has a FIM score of 39.Thanks for your help.

      FIM scores at the extreme low or high range correspond well with discharge disposition (low scores more likely to be discharged to a facility, high scores more likely to be discharged home). The article linked below explains that individuals scoring less than 40 on the FIM have a 70% probability of being discharged to a skilled nursing facility.


      Hope this helps!
