Answer

Answer

Rehabilitation services have been shown to play a critical role in recovery from acute stroke. Physicians and nurses play crucial roles on the rehabilitation team; nurses often are the first to suggest initiation of therapy services, because they have the most extensive involvement with the patient. Prior to a discussion of the specific therapy disciplines, address nursing issues in the care of patients with vertebrobasilar stroke.
