Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals Recommended for Post-Stroke Care

Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals are the recommended post-acute venue for stroke survivors by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA).

The AHA/ASA recommends that immediately following acute-care stays, stroke patients receive rehabilitation treatment at inpatient rehabilitation facilities rather than skilled nursing facilities. At an inpatient facility, services are delivered by a multidisciplinary team of experienced healthcare providers.

Evidence shows that dedicated, inter-professional stroke care may:

  • Reduce mortality rates
  • Lessen the likelihood of institutional care
  • Decrease long-term disability
  • Enhance recovery
  • Increase independence with activities of daily living
