Rehabilitative services can help people, with disabilities, to get gainfully employed and do away with reliance on others. This includes meeting the physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families while incorporating the nursing and rehabilitative processes. Such Services should be provided to all patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings at all levels of care.
The importance of Rehabilitative Services should not be under emphasized. These Services are part and parcel of any type of treatment and most of the time are indistinguishable as separate entities. It should be kept in mind that patients are receiving some type of rehabilitation during treatment or interaction with health care providers, as for example while receiving treatment for typhoid fever he/she is also being rehabilitated psychologically/nutritionally. Putting this in another way, it goes without saying that health care providers must avail all opportunities to provide right type of the rehabilitative services according to prevailing circumstances and level of care.
