For National Stroke Awareness Month, we are highlighting a therapy team working at a Level II Stroke Center. Their commitment to running their portion of the stroke program with an organized, comprehensive approach has helped many patients excel in their recovery.
Patients receiving treatment after a stroke benefit from what Area Manager Courtney Hulett, PT sums up as “co-treats” with an increased focus on communication. The disciplines of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy meet frequently not just with each other, but with nurses and physicians, to discuss progress and plans of care.
