The rehabilitation process
Generally, a comprehensive report on the results of diagnostic examinations is required in order to decide whether or not to admit a patient to a rehabilitation clinic. The more precise the information received on the patient’s health, the more precise the prognosis will be regarding the potential results and required duration of the rehabilitation.
When a patient is admitted to a clinic, he or she undergoes a thorough examination, during which rehabilitation goals are discussed with the patient and/or the relatives. Where necessary, decisions are made regarding further essential diagnostic measures. Based on the results of the examination and the rehabilitation goals, an individual treatment plan is drawn up for each patient.
Rehabilitation ends when the patient’s rehabilitation goals have been achieved or when the rehabilitative efforts can provide no further medical improvements.
