Designated Stroke Units
The Stroke Unit delivers care using national stroke guidelines and best practices. Our nursing staff has advanced training in caring for stroke patients. Care is personalized, coordinated and provided in an interdisciplinary manner. Case managers work with each patient to coordinate the appropriate discharge plan.
Patients may be admitted to our Stroke Unit directly from the Emergency Department or from critical care/intermediate care units.
The Stroke Unit focuses on stabilizing medical complications and begins the rehabilitation process. Physical and occupational therapists and speech/language pathologists are part of the treatment team and provide rehabilitation early on to optimize recovery.
