This study was undertaken to identify factors predicting stroke inpatient rehabilitation length of stay in an acute inpatient rehabilitation program, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy.
A cohort of 152 patients suffering from stroke (76 women and 76 men) voluntarily participated in this study.
They were recruited from a general hospital in which they had received physical rehabilitation.
The functional status of patients was observed by a physiotherapist, using the Functional Independence MeasureSM.
The functional status was observed on patient admission to rehabilitation and at 1 wk from admission.
Post-stroke biologic characteristics, including physical, neuropsychological, and clinical characteristics, as well as sociodemographic characteristics were also collected.
A path analysis, using successive multiple linear regressions, was adopted to predict length of stay in rehabilitation.
Significant predictors of length of stay were age, functional status at 1 wk post-rehabilitation admission, perceptual status, and balance status.
These predictors accounted for 43.6% of the total variance in the rehabilitation length of stay.
Indirect predictors of length of stay were identified as the following : functional status at admission, rehabilitation program, motor status, communication problems, and medical complications. (...)
