Abstract

Up to half of the stroke patients admitted to acute hospital wards become bed-blockers. Investigations have been carried out in an effort to identify factors related to this problem. Very little is known aboutoptions which may lead to an alleviation of this problem. We investigated to what extent, in the opinions of professional representatives of six disciplines, home care can contribute to a solution. Sixty-nine stroke patients who were actually blocking beds in an acute hospital ward were described and examined on paper by a multidisciplinary panel. These patients were all moderately to severely disabled and needed a high degree of help in activities of daily life (ADL) and household activities. Estimations of the number of patients who were judged to be suitable for home care varied, although there was a fair degree of agreement between panel members concerning those patients who could and those who certainly could not return to their homes. Concerning one-third of the patients, the opinions of the caregivers diverged. Factors relating to the judgement of each panel member are identified. A methodfor selecting patients to be substituted to lower levels of care is suggested and discussed.
