Stroke victims lose 'crucial functions' because hospitals don't properly rehabilitate them
from Medical Daily
Far too often, hospitals are failing to provide the kind of post-stroke therapy that can prevent victims from suffering long-term loss of function, according to a new study in Canada, which looked at 60,000 stroke and mini-stroke cases over two years. After a stroke, the clock starts ticking on a crucial window for treatment that can help people get back to living normal — or at least functional — lives. But of the 40 percent of patients who could benefit, only 16 percent get access to this kind of rehabilitation.
