The goal of Rehabilitation Nursing is to assist patients in attaining and maintaining their maximum function. This model of care empowers patients to live as normally as possible in a hospital, complete with comprehensive rehabilitation facilities, to optimise recovery and facilitate independent living before returning home.
Rehabilitation Nurses work closely with a multi-disciplinary team which includes rehabilitation physicians and allied health professionals. They provide input in team-decision making on patient treatment goals and discharge plans in weekly multi-disciplinary team meetings. The team performs functional assessment for patients on admission and weekly, using functional independent measurement tools and implements a care plan by providing direct nursing care and education to maintain and restore patient function.
The nurses provide a safe and therapeutic environment, and support various activities like Wii games, play, art and music therapies, and nurse-led exercise programs that promote patients’ functional recovery.
