Rehabilitation Mismanagement & Treatment Delays

Rehabilitation is the process of restoring an individual’s physical and mental capacity. It involves working alongside a team of medical professionals to encourage recovery and to maximise a patient’s independence. Patients often require rehabilitation for certain injuries such as fractures which have hindered their mobility or as a result of a neurological condition such as a stroke which involves working closely with a physiotherapist or speech therapist. 

Types of Rehabilitation Mismanagement & Treatment Delays

Although most medical institutes may have experience in this area, there may be instances where there has been a failure to provide rehabilitation or a delay in providing it which causes the patient further injury or a delayed recovery.  Examples of rehabilitation errors include:

  • Delays in arranging referrals for physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and speech therapy
  • Failures providing adequate and effective rehabilitation
  • Delays  in referring patients for pain management
  • A failure in referring patients for counseling and to psychiatrists following traumatic medical treatment
  • Failure in setting up cardiopulmonary, surgical, and rheumatologic rehabilitation
  • Delays in providing aids such as orthotics, wheelchairs, walking sticks and crutches
  • And other rehabilitation complaints
