  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Much is to be desired when visually handicapped persons are referred from eye hospitals to rehabilitation facilities. We had three patients who wished to enter a rehabilitation center for professional training. The major problems were: too scant availability of facilities for the multiply handicapped, too much paperwork before admission, too long waiting time and lack of adequate place of stay before admission. Following actions seemed to be necessary: to offer informations about rehabilitation facilities to the patients at the earliest occasion, to keep a rehabilitation specialist in medical institutions, and to provide documents to share informations among the clinical staff.
