Beds of early stroke rehabilitation
Early rehabilitation beds are part of the VFN stroke center and provide comprehensive and intensive rehabilitation and nursing care to adult patients as soon as possible after a stroke or other acute acquired brain injury. A precondition for admission to the LVR is a stabilized patient condition including accompanying internal diseases and rehabilitation potential with the assumption of rehabilitation effectiveness requiring patient cooperation and its ability to tolerate a therapeutic load of at least 2-3 hours a day. The LVR indication is assessed by a physician in the VFN before admission (physician specialist in the field of FBLR). The length of hospitalization at LVR is decided by the attending physician, the average length of stay is 4 weeks. After release, it is possible to continue the rehabilitation in the outpatient form in the indicated patients or to attend the day care center of the VFN Rehabilitation Medicine Clinic.
Medical rehabilitation at LVR is provided by an experienced multidisciplinary team that includes doctors specializing in FBLR, internal medicine, geriatrics, a wide range of therapists in the fields of physiotherapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy, nutrition. The team also includes a clinical psychologist, visual therapist and social worker. Nursing care is provided by qualified nurses and nurses with experience in treating patients with neurological, locomotor and cognitive deficits. The aim of team work with the patient is to use the rehabilitation potential already in the early stage of the stroke, where the most significant improvement of the functional abilities, motor skills and self-sufficiency of the patient can be achieved, which would allow his return to the domestic environment and to normal activities.
LVRs are functionally integrated under Geriatric Clinic, however, are profiled as beds in the industry rehabilitation therefore, they are intended for patients of all ages, including young patients requiring specialized neurorehabilitation, eg after craniotrauma (head trauma).
