Before the inspection, we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included the previous inspection report and notifications since the last inspection. Notifications are changes, events and incidents that the service must inform us about. We used information the provider sent us in the Provider Information Return (PIR). This is information we require providers to send us at least once annually to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make.
Would home-cooked meals, help around the house and rides to the store make all the difference for you or your aging loved one? This most basic (and often most affordable) type of in-home care generally includes light housekeeping, companionship, meal preparation, and help with errands. You can hire help to come on a regular weekly schedule or only as needed. Expect to pay about $15-$40/hour for this type of service, depending where you live.
Disposition: Disposition is the last link in the chain of survival. This step in stroke care focuses on the continuing care of the stroke patient. It is recommended that patients be admitted to an intensive care unit or stroke unit within three hours of arrival in the ED. Continued monitoring of a stroke patient includes frequent assessment of neurological status and monitoring of glucose levels and vitals, as well as prevention of complications. Determining the cause of the stroke is also part of disposition.
Mayo Clinic provides easy access to its stroke rehabilitation services by working with numerous insurance companies, and in most cases, doesn’t require a referral from a physician. Once you’ve made an appointment, your loved one will be evaluated by doctors with extensive training in neurology, emergency medicine, rehabilitation, and other specialties. Doctors from the Mayo Clinic treat approximately 15,000 people who have suffered from stroke or similar conditions each year, so you can count on their expertise. For diagnostic purposes, Mayo Clinic uses advanced technology and imaging tests. One special type of diagnosis used at this facility is stroke telemedicine, or telestroke. Used only by doctors with advanced training and involving video cameras, the Internet, and advanced robotic equipment, telestroke is used to evaluate patients who have suffered from acute strokes.
