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:

Hospital receives awards for stroke care - Thousand Oaks, California

Who the hell cares about 'guidelines' or 'care'? We want to know results you lazy fucking idiots.
1. Nothing on 100% recovery statistics.
2. Nothing on 30-day deaths compared to other hospitals.
3. Nothing on the efficacy of their stroke rehab protocols.
4.  Nothing on tPA full efficacy.
5. Nothing on their misdiagnosis percentage of strokes, especially young strokes.
Guidelines prove nothing.
You'll' want to know results so Call that  President and Chief Executive Officer(

Natalie Mussi)

general number  (805-497-2727  and demand to know what the RESULTS are; tPA efficacy, 30 day deaths, 100% recovery, misdiagnosis percentage.
Big fucking whoopee.

The puffery article here:
Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks was recently awarded the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines: Stroke and Heart Failure Gold Plus achievement awards.
The awards recognize the hospital’s commitment to providing the most appropriate stroke treatment according to nationally recognized guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence and for establishing quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association/ American College of Cardiology Foundation’s secondary prevention guidelines for patients with heart failure.
Hospitals must achieve 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get with the Guidelines: Stroke achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month periods and achieve 75 percent or higher compliance with five of eight Get with the Guidelines: Stroke quality measures to receive this award.
Los Robles Hospital also qualified for the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus, which means the hospital has met quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, a drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat ischemic stroke.
Get with the Guidelines is a quality improvement program that helps hospital teams follow the most up-to-date, research-based standards with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing hospital readmissions for heart failure patients.
Launched in 2005, published studies have demonstrated the program’s success in achieving patient outcome improvements, including reductions in 30-day readmissions.
