A Game Changer for Stroke TreatmentPatients with severe strokes have far better outcomes when treated with a drug to dissolve a blood clot and a procedure to dislodge and remove it.
Rush Clinic Takes Off at O'HareA partnership between a Chicago-area business and the Rush University College of Nursing has provided one group of workers not only free health services, but advocacy for care.
I’m a rehab doctor, and so my focus is on function and quality of life after a patient has had an injury or an illness, possibly a surgery or working on a chronic problem.
In rehab the families are key because they — certain patients, if they can’t take care of themselves at home, they’re going to need that family to rely on. We also work as a team with different specialties like physical, occupational, and speech therapy. And so it’s a combined effort to work towards the recovery of that patient.
When you see a patient that is overcoming all of these obstacles and makes a small gain, and they’re so happy, and they’ve done a lot of the work, that’s really a beautiful thing.
