The purpose of this study was to identify which variables predict positive functional outcomes in rehabilitation of patients after a stroke. This study was a retrospective cohort study utilizing the Uniform Data Set from the social service records, the patient information sheet, and the quality assurance records to provide medical and demographic information. Sixty-nine patient records were included in the study.
Multiple regression analysis predicting total Functional Independence Measure (FIM) at discharge was significant, (p < .001). Significant predictors included total FIM at admission, length of stay, cognitive status and average hours of therapy. Higher total FIM admission scores, longer lengths of stay, higher cognitive status and more hours of therapy resulted in higher total discharge FIM scores. Mobility sub-scale FIM at discharge was significantly predicted by total FIM at admission and average hours of therapy, (p
