Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this study was to determine the functional outcome following in-patient rehabilitation of stroke patients at Cebu Doctors' Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.


DESIGN: Descriptive-Evaluative.


SETTING: Cebu Doctors' Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Osmeña Blvd. Cebu City.


SUBJECTS / PARTICIPANTS: Only 31 stroke patients who were admitted and treated as in-patient at Cebu Doctors' Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department were included in this study. Random sampling was used.


PROCEDURES / INTERVENTION: Functional Independence Measure scores of stroke patients upon rehab admission and discharge were gathered and the difference noted. The total and subscale mean and standard deviation were then noted.


RESEARCH INSTRUMENTS: Functional Independence Measure (FIM) was used to evaluate outcome of patients who had undergone initial comprehensive in-patient medical rehabilitation.


RESULTS: The average total FIM score upon admission was 68.68 and 80.81 at discharge awith a gain of 12.31 units. The compound t was 4.51 which is greater that the critical t-value of 1.64 at 0.05 level of significance.


CONLUSION: The mean gain between mean FIM admission scores and mean FIM discharge scores represents a functional outcome in patient following in-patient rehabilitation. Therefore, we conclude that in-patient rehabilitation program at Cebu Doctors' Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation proved to be effective in treating stroke patients.
