Combating coronavirus: Hospitals take Covid-19 treatment beyond recovery
A free of cost rehabilitation programme has also been launched in Ras Al Khaimah for Covid-19 patients.
The first of its kind initiative launched by RAK Hospital aims to help patients improve their physical and mental health, which might have been compromised due to the infection. The hospital’s wellness programme that comprises physician consultation, diet consultation, psychological support and physical therapy can be availed of by all residents recovered from Covid-19.
Dr Raza Siddiqui, executive director of the hospital, said: “We decided to launch the free-of-cost rehabilitation programme to enable the patients recovered from Covid-19 to return to enjoying normal life with their families.”
He confirmed the programme addresses common residual Covid-19 symptoms, specifically breathlessness, starting with exercise, getting back to functional activities, mental health and post intubation symptoms such as voice weakness, eating, drinking and attention and memory deficits.
