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.
We are able to provide the full spectrum of psychiatric interventions for fairly ill — and people who hadn’t gotten better in other treatment situations. We feel confident here at Rush that we can provide whatever is necessary in order to help people get better.
I think it’s very important to bring in support — whoever functions as a supportive person, whether it’s a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend — and I think it’s very important to have them in the room to discuss aspects of illness, what the treatment involves, what the recovery’s going to be, so that everybody understands what’s going on with the patient. And I think it’s comforting for the patient to have that, as well — that they’re not on their own, and that they can bring their support network in and have their support network also understand what it is that we’re doing.
