Time Use of Stroke Patients with Stroke Admitted for Rehabilitation in Skilled Nursing Facilities
To describe the time use of patients with stroke in five Skilled Nurs- ing Facilities (SNFs) in the Netherlands, focusing on the time spent on thera- peutic activities, nontherapeutic activities, interaction with others, and the location where the activities took place. Evidence suggest that task-oriented interventions are the most effective for patients with stroke and that some of these interventions are relevant and feasi- ble for use by nurses.The question arises to what extent elderly patients who had a stroke and rehabilitate in a SNF receive therapeutic training and engage in therapeutic activities.
