Stroke recovery is a complex process dependent upon a multitude of factors that occur during the acute hospital stay as well as during the post-acute hospital period. With hospital stays being limited to just days, acute care healthcare professionals see only the initial stroke insult; they do not have the benefit of seeing the patient’s progress in the post-acute period where the majority of progress is made.
