Nursing Manager for the Rehab Unit Anna Telligman says while they have always treated stroke patients, she says they recently presented a program to the accrediting company which inspects the hospital.

Speaking on WVUT’s 22-Magazine, Telligman says part of that program is a stroke clinic which meets once a month.

Telligman says sometimes a therapist will make a visit to a patient’s home to see what phyiscal changes might be in order to assist the individual get around easier.
