Nurse practitioners (NP) are advanced practice registered nurses that manage acute and chronic medical conditions, both physical and mental, through history and physical exam and the ordering of diagnostic tests and medical treatments. NPs are qualified to diagnose medical problems, order treatments, perform advanced procedures, prescribe medications, and make referrals for a wide range of acute and chronic medical conditions within their scope of practice. Their education includes a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or other undergraduate degree, and requires a license as a registered nurse (RN) and experience as an RN in a health care setting. They must graduate from an accredited graduate (MSN) or doctoral (DNP) program and achieve a board certification.

When someone is having symptoms of a stroke – slurred speech, sudden leg or arm weakness, facial drooping, loss of balance or visual changes – getting them to the hospital quickly can mean the difference between recovery and permanent disability. One of the best treatments for ischemic stroke is treatment with the clot-busting drug, intravenous tissue plasminogen activator, or IV tPA. If given in the first three hours after the start of stroke symptoms, IV tPA has been shown to significantly reduce the effects of stroke and lessen the chance of permanent disability. UofL Hospital Stroke Center staff strive to deliver IV tPA to appropriate patients within 45 minutes to one hour from the time they arrive at the hospital.
Mayo Clinic provides easy access to its stroke rehabilitation services by working with numerous insurance companies, and in most cases, doesn’t require a referral from a physician. Once you’ve made an appointment, your loved one will be evaluated by doctors with extensive training in neurology, emergency medicine, rehabilitation, and other specialties. Doctors from the Mayo Clinic treat approximately 15,000 people who have suffered from stroke or similar conditions each year, so you can count on their expertise. For diagnostic purposes, Mayo Clinic uses advanced technology and imaging tests. One special type of diagnosis used at this facility is stroke telemedicine, or telestroke. Used only by doctors with advanced training and involving video cameras, the Internet, and advanced robotic equipment, telestroke is used to evaluate patients who have suffered from acute strokes.

A less restrictive alternative to legal incapacity is the use of "advance directives," powers of attorney, trusts, living wills and healthcare directives. The person who has such documents in place should have prepared them with their attorney when that person had capacity. Then, if the time comes that the person lacks capacity to carry out the tasks laid out in the documents, the person they named (their agent) can step in to make decisions on their behalf. The agent has a duty to act as that person would have done so and to act in their best interest.

While there are certainly programs available for use by the elderly in Thailand, questions of equity have risen since their introduction.[32] The rich elderly in Thailand are much more likely to have access to care resources, while the poor elderly are more likely to actually use their acquired health care, as observed in a study by Bhumisuk Khananurak.[32] However, over 96% of the nation has health insurance with varying degrees of care available.[32]

India's cultural view of elderly care is similar to that of Nepal's. Parents are typically cared for by their children into old age, most commonly by their sons.[33] In these countries, elderly citizens, especially men, are viewed in very high regard. Traditional values demand honor and respect for older, wiser people.[34] India is facing the same problem as many developing nations in that its elderly population is increasing tremendously, with a current estimate of 90 million over the age of 60.[35] Using data on health and living conditions from the India's 60th National Sample Survey, a study found that almost a quarter of the elderly reported poor health. Reports of poor health were clustered among the poor, single, lower-educated and economically inactive groups.[36]

One relatively new service in the United States that can help keep older people in their homes longer is respite care.[18] This type of care allows caregivers the opportunity to go on vacation or a business trip and know that their family member has good quality temporary care, for without this help the elder might have to move permanently to an outside facility. Another unique type of care cropping in U.S. hospitals is called acute care of elder units, or ACE units, which provide "a homelike setting" within a medical center specifically for older adults.[19]
This inspection took place on 17 September 2018 and was carried out by one inspector. The provider was given 48 hours’ notice of the inspection visit because it is a small domiciliary care agency and we needed to be sure that they would be in the office. We also needed them to get people’s consent for us to visit them at home or telephone them as part of the inspection.
