AbstractThe research study aims to assess the quality of physical medicine and rehabilitation (MFR) services offered to the population by specialized sanatoriums and hospitals in Dobrogea, in order to identify some appropriate measures to improve the quality of such services.The target group (593 respondents) consisted of 6 independent batches, different in number, selected from 6 medical units. The patients responded to a specific questionnaire regarding the quality of MFR services and the collected data were analyzed statistically.According to the patients′ answers, the medical staff meets their expectations in terms of the information provided at the time of admission, promptitude, kindness, availability, which reflects just one segment of the quality of medical rehabilitation services.As regards the entity recommending the medical rehabilitation physician, of the total answers, the lowest ratio in the study is held by the answer “family doctor / another doctor”. It thus highlights the poor knowledge of family doctors or other doctors on the therapy benefits specific to medical rehabilitation and therefore the access to such services is not facilitated, a disservice to the patients′ life quality. There is a dependence relation between the level of education and the reason of admission. We see that is not prevention taking the first position, but the pain, which reflects a deficient education for health in all social levels.Assessing the patient’s satisfaction regarding the mobility facilities in the sanatorium / hospital a percentage of 6.6% patient responded that they are not satisfied. It results that all the 6 partner institutions in the study must evolve to provide decent conditions ensuring the mobility independence to the patients.
