Nurses' independent decisions about assessment, treatment, and nursing interventions for hospitalized patients are important determinants of quality of care.

In this post you'll find 8 stroke nursing care plans (NCP). Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), brain attack, is a sudden impairment of cerebral circulation in one or more blood vessels supplying the brain. Cerebrovascular accident, also known as stroke, cerebral infarction, brain attack, is any functional or structural abnormality of the brain caused by pathological condition of the cerebral vessels of the entire cerebrovascular system. It is the sudden impairment of cerebral circulation in one or more of the blood vessels supplying the brain.

Current nursing practice for the care of patients with ischemic stroke . Neglect may restrict the activities of patients and reduce their quality of life

Current nursing practice for the care of patients with ischemic stroke advocates routine elevation of the head of the bed (HOB) to 30 degrees. On average, a . % increase in MCA-MFV was measured when the HOB was lowered to 15 degrees from the 30 degrees elevation standard (p .02); MCA-MFV increased on average by . % when the HOB was again lowered from the 15 degrees position to the 0 degrees (flat) position (p not significant). Neglect may restrict the activities of patients and reduce their quality of life. Patients are often unaware of their neglect behavior and of their inability to see or feel persons or objects on their affected side.

Methods: A retrospective study was conducted at a geriatric rehabilitation department in a tertiary medical center during 2009. The medical charts of consecutive elderly (≥65 years) patients admitted for rehabilitation after CVA were studied for the following measurements: admission Norton scale scores, admission albumin serum levels, mini-mental status examination (MMSE) scores, discharge walking functional independence measure (FIM) scores, discharge transfer FIM scores, and rehabilitation length in days.

PurposeTo compare the quality of care in teaching hospitals with that in nonteaching hospitals. Adjusted mortality was significantly lower in nonteaching hospitals in one of the 15 studies involving patients in pediatric ICUs. In this study, the teaching hospitals had better processes of care (see Table 1); unexpectedly, other factors ordinarily associated with better quality (especially in high-tech ICU situations) such as volume, children’s hospital location, and unit coordination had no effect on mortality.
