The term rehabilitation is usually restricted to describe social security aspects of medical reintegration into the vocational and social environment. In reality rehabilitation means more than that. It is derived from the Latin word habilitare-to enable. This means that it should be initiated sooner than at present, i.e. in the form of early rehabilitation in the emergency department, including the intensive care unit.
