Clinical Outcomes for Stroke Patients at Casa Colina
Patients with stroke improve in their mobility and cognition throughout
our continuum of care allowing them to return home safely. Using the Stroke
Rehabilitation Assessment of Movement (STREAM), we measure basic mobility
such as movement of arms, lying down, sitting, standing, and walking.
At Casa Colina, patients with stroke significantly improve their mobility
throughout our continuum of care.
(Data collected between 1/2010 – 9/2012; sample size for IP = 222,
TLC = 17, OP = 93)
STREAM Range = 0-100
Patients experience a significant decrease in the level of supervision
they need, allowing them to return to their previous living environment.
We use the Supervision Rating Scale to measure the amount of supervision
an individual needs from a licensed professional or caregiver. On average
when patients are admitted to Casa Colina after having a stroke, they
require full time direct or indirect supervision. At discharge, patients
only require part time supervision.
(Data collected between 1/2010 - 9/2012; sample size for IP = 171, TLC
= 7, OP = 14)
SRS Range = 0 - 13, 1 = Independent, 13 = Full time direct supervision
Casa Colina patients experience significant improvements in their cognitive
abilities, including memory and problem solving. We use the American Speech
and Hearing Association (ASHA) functional communication measures to observe
changes in problem solving abilities and memory. On average, we observe
significant changes as patients go from requiring maximum to only minimal
cues for memory and problem solving tasks.
(Data collected between 1/2010 – 9/2012; sample size for IP = 171,
TLC = 15, OP = 11)
Range = 1-7, 1 = Maximum Assistance, 7 = Independent
