ACUTE CARE DEPARTMENTS

Accident and Emergency

When the patient arrives at the hospital, the emergency task force will assess the patient and call the core and acute team for CT scan and/or administration of medicine.

ICU and HDU

Patients are transferred here to receive critical care and intensive monitoring.

Operating Theatre

For hemorrhagic strokes, suitable cases will undergo surgery.

Surgery is performed to seal the ruptured aneurysm in hemorrhagic stroke.

Neuroscience Centre

The team of experienced neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neurointerventional radiologists, and neurorehabilitation specialists work together to design the best treatment program for the patient’s brain.

REHABILITATIVE CARE DEPARTMENTS

Rehabilitation Medicine Centre

When the patient’s conditions become stable, a program is drawn up as soon as possible to help regain any physical skills or basic living skills lost during the stroke.

Speech and Hearing Centre

Some patients will have problems speaking normally after stroke, as it may have damaged any level of the auditory (listening) and vocal (speaking) pathways in the brain. Therapy helps improve patients’ ability to communicate by giving personalised support and teaching them the right coping strategies.

Hand surgeries are sometimes performed on patients to correct the posture, control, and function of the hand, helping them recover from the loss of movement, and the pain it brings.

GOING FURTHER

Back to normal life

The stroke care team carries out careful assessment and treatment plans to see the patients resume normal functioning in:

  • Mobility (ability to move)
  • Cognition (ability to understand)
  • Speech
  • Nutrition
  • Eyesight
  • Continence (ability to control the bowels and bladder)

Preventing it from happening again

When patients have had a stroke, they are under higher risks for another stroke. After a stroke, it is important to find out why it happened in the first place, so we know what to do to stop it from coming back.

Many contributors of stroke, such as high blood pressure, heart disorders, and diabetes are preventable by adopting a healthier lifestyle.
