  1. Acute stroke patients : Comparing outcomes with and without case management.

    Article - En anglais

    Stroke represents a major human and economic challenge to society.

    The literature suggests that interdisciplinary clinical pathways maximize stroke patient outcomes, whether care is delivered in a designated stroke unit or in a general medical service.

    In this article, the authors describe the case management model implemented at Columbus Regional Hospital, a 325-bed rural referral hospital in southeastem Indiana.

    A retrospective chart review compared 23 patients with non-hemorrhagic strokes using two different models of care delivery : unit-based nursing case management and standard nursing care.

    Differences in outcomes are reported in relation to interdisciplinary utilization, timeliness of referrals, patient education, discharge dispositions, home safety assessments, next-site-of-care communications, length of hospital stay, and patient satisfaction.
