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.

So fucking what? Care, not results, what fucking incompetency are they trying to pass off as great work? Time to ream them out and ask for the stroke hospital president resignation.

Bluewater Health is gaining provincial recognition for its performance in stroke care.
The organization has the highest percentage of patients receiving imaging on their necks during their acute stay at nearly 98%.
Regional Stroke Director Paula Gilmore says they also have the lowest number of alternative level of care days to total length of stay in acute care at 1.6%.
“Patients who are admitted for strokes are receiving care in the appropriate location,” says Gilmore. “They’re not waiting in locations that they no longer require that level of care for. So, they are flowing smoothly to services such as inpatient rehabilitation, after stroke, or they’re being discharged home in a timely way.”
Gilmore says it’s important for everyone to recognize the signs of stroke, which include vision problems, trouble speaking, headache, and dizziness and call 911.
She says they treat upwards of 200 stroke patients each year.
The numbers are included in the 2017 Ontario Stroke Report Card that was released in June.
