Just two weeks before completing the first Rehab Cycle, Peter asked to be discharged and was released against the recommendations of his health care team. Unfortunately, he was unable to be dissuaded and a final evaluation was performed just before he left the clinic — significantly earlier than originally intended.

This evaluation compared the first assessment of the intervention targets with the final outcomes. His evaluation display showed that his outcome evaluation met most of the intervention targets (see Table 3). Although there was some improvement in all of the targets, the desired values were not reached in a number of intervention targets, including changing body position and the ability to transfer himself.
Other critical interventions, such as those grouped under personal factors, did however show some improvement. Similarly, some cycle goals were not achieved. It is believed that this was a result of his early departure from the program and that had he remained in the program, more targets and goals would have been met.
