Social consequences of cerebral apoplexy account of 129 patients with cerebral apoplexy admitted as emergencies to a department of neuro medicine in copenhagen denmark in the course of 1 year



Ugeskrift for Laeger 142(46): 3078-3081



Patients [129] with newly-developed cerebral apoplexy were studied. The material consisted of 58 women and 71 men with average ages of 72.2 and 67.7 yr, respectively. Forty-five patients died during hospitalization and 55 of 84 survivors were discharged directly to their homes. Patients who required continued nursing care had to wait for up to 1 yr, on average, before they could be admitted to suitable nursing-homes. The greater part of the waiting period was passed in special departments established in closed-down hospitals. When the increasing future requirements for nursing-home beds are compared with the modest plans for increasing nursing-home capacity, it may be predicted that the waiting period will increase considerably during the coming years.
