LANSING—Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center today proudly announced that Allie Hill, BSN, RN, CBIS, a registered nurse and certified brain injury specialist, passed a recent examination to become formally recognized as a Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse.

“Allie’s new certification is a remarkable personal achievement, the culmination of years of hard work, and a great reminder that survivors of traumatic brain injuries being treated at Origami have access to world class caregivers,” said Tammy Hannah, OTRL, CBIS, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Origami.

Origami is a nonprofit organization located on a 35 acre wooded campus in Mason, just outside of Lansing.  The facility offers a continuum of care for adults who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, from residential to community-based and outpatient programs with the resources available to return people to productive and active lives.

TBI can be mild to severe and often corresponds with a temporary loss of consciousness and impacts to brain function such as memory loss.  The injury may also affect a person’s physical functioning, thinking skills, and behavior. These effects can manifest themselves in other difficulties as well, like anxiety, depression, dizziness, headaches, inability to start or finish tasks or trouble sleeping, all of which can bring about challenges with relationships both in the home and on the job.

Residents with loved ones who were involved in an accident or hit their head and show the signs of a TBI are advised to seek medical attention immediately.

Origami operates in partnership with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Peckham, Inc. The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation within MSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine provides Origami with expertise in clinical management and on-site physician coverage. Peckham, Inc. is an award winning nonprofit organization that provides job training and competitive employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
