Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

Spaulding Rehab Hospital Receives National Accreditation - CARF stroke speciality

I couldn't find any stroke standards at the CARF website -
so with nothing public, this is completely f*cking worthless.

Big f*cking whoopee. 
SANDWICH – Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Cape Cod has received a three-year accreditation from CARF International for its inpatient rehabilitation and stroke specialty programs.
The nonprofit organization promotes quality, value and optimal outcomes of services provided by rehabilitation facilities.
Surveyors evaluated the facility’s programs, focusing on what they called “promotion of a culture of ongoing performance improvement.”

CARF also cited the “chasing zero harms” program for “greatly improving patient safety.”
The hospital’s staffing ratios were also praised, as well as its model for inpatient physician care.

NOTHING on results, so this is useless for evaluating whether this hospital is any good for stroke patients.
No 30-day death statistics.
No 100% recovery statistics.
No tPA full recovery statistics.
