Results

By three months after the stroke, 15% of the survivors initially admitted to the stroke unit and 39% of those admitted to general medical wards remained hospitalized (p < 0.001). The corresponding figures by one year after the cerebrovascular accident were 12% and 28%, respectively (p < 0.05). A greater proportion of surviving stroke unit patients was independent in walking (0.10 > p > 0.05), personal hygiene (p < 0.05) and dressing (p < 0.001).
