[Implementation of nursing in the acute care of patients with stroke. Description of the acute care stroke unit in the Tampere University Hospital Center].

Abstract

The study examines the implementation of nursing care and uses information derived from the nursing plan as its point of departure. The focus is on the acute nursing phase of stroke patients in the Stroke Unit. The study is based on the theoretical model presented by Roper et al. (1985). The study depicts the components of the nursing care of stroke patients. It was found that the sixty-two (62) stroke patients received a total of 17,125 nursing interventions of different kinds. In the acute phase, the focus seems to be on maintaining the vital functions. The results help nurses to improve the nursing care given to these patients.
