Purpose
The aim of this study was to clarify the differences in the placement after discharge and the concerns prior to the discharge of stroke patients in order to determine the ideal method for effective discharge support.
Methods
The subjects consisted of homecare patients and facility residents that had experienced a stroke. This investigation period was from December 2005 to June 2007. The study was an interview survey conducted with an original multiple-choice questionnaire. The survey was conducted in a privacy-protected setting, and participation was voluntary. All names of individuals and facilities were encoded and blinded.
Results
There were 52 homecare patients and 52 facility residents.
Cerebral infarction occurred in about 70% of both populations. Thirty-two of the homecare patients were concerned prior to discharge, as were 25 of the facility residents. Nineteen of the homecare patients and 11 of the facility residents had an opportunity for consultation. The concerns of the patients in both groups included the prospect of medical treatment and their physical function, and the homecare patients were concerned about their caretakers and care, home living environment, while the facility residents were concerned about their facility, their destination after the discharge, and dissatisfaction about the discharge.
Conclusion
There are many concerns associated with discharge of homecare patients following a stroke, and most of these are directly associated with their life after the discharge. However, the facility residents had fewer opportunities for consultation, and worried about their quality of life following discharge.
