Abstract

ABSTRACT: Physical medicine and rehabilitation, or physiatry, is comprehensive medical care that helps a person get back, keep, or improve his or her physical, mental, or cognitive abilities needed for daily life. Six hallmarks of rehabilitation were discovered by this nurse author after her husband suffered a severe traumatic brain injury and was cared for at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals.
