    Stroke patients ready for discharge from acute care - a multi-dimensional assessment of functions and further care1999In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 31-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe actual functions, performance of activities and needs of further care in patients with stroke in acute care wards at the time the physicians decided that the patients were ready for discharge, in relation to placement after discharge and the motives for the decision. Method: Thus 114 stroke patients in Stockholm County were assessed with the Resident Assessment Instrument, and the motives for further care were reviewed in the patients' case records. Results: The results showed that the oldest, most severely impaired stroke patients had the shortest mean length of stay before the physician considered the patients ready for discharge to nursing homes, where resources for long-term rehabilitation and stroke care vary. Conclusion: It is important to secure continuing adequate care and rehabilitation for elderly severely impaired stroke patients being discharged early from acute care hospitals.
