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:

Visitor hours bid as health chiefs agree all stroke rehab is to go to Evesham

Visiting hours are just a distraction. Will the RESULTS from this change get every stroke survivor close to 100% recovery. Don't let them distract you with 'better care' comments. RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS, nothing less. Put their goddammed feet to the fire.
PLANS for increased visiting times are being developed as part of changes to centralise all specialist rehabilitation care for those recovering from a stroke at Evesham community hospital.
At the end of 2016 Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and the three local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) put together a proposal to consolidate the county’s specialist stroke rehab beds in Evesham rather than also at the Princess of Wales in Bromsgrove and in Worcester.
This would mean all patients across the county who needed a specialist rehab bed post stroke would be admitted to Evesham. The total number of beds, 32 in all, will be maintained.
Last Wednesday (February 8) the board of Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust approved those proposals but following discussions and engagement with patients and families, it has also committed to developing ideas and changes which could make it easier for those who, as part of the plans, will be required to travel to Evesham from other parts of the county.
This includes increasing visiting times for families, support with identifying public transport options, investigating digital options and the support of hospital volunteers in helping patients stay in touch with family while on the ward.
The plans to consolidate the specialise stroke rehab beds at Evesham Community Hospital in full will come into effect in early April but Evesham will start taking more new admissions from the middle of this week.
