A model for management of patients with stroke during the acute phase : outcome and economic implications.
Background and Purpose
The purpose of the study was to develop a clinical pathway for patients with nonhemorrhagic stroke during the acute hospital phase to improve the quality of care and reduce costs.
The pathway included standard admission orders and a swallow screen on day 1 of hospitalization.
Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and social worker assessments were done on day 2. A physiatry consult was performed on day 3 if indicated, and by day 4 a discharge target date and disposition were addressed.
Outcomes for 121 patients during the first year of pathway implementation are reported.
