Ochsner program hoping to help stroke victims take next step from home
The South is often called the stroke belt. Ochsner Neurologist, Dr. Kenneth Gaines, was the first in the country to devise and execute an innovative program called Stroke Mobile. People who have suffered a stroke will get a year of in-home follow-up care with a specially trained nurse to teach the family about the major difference that diet and exercise can make and to make sure they're taking the right dose of medications and to recognize a health problem before it gets bad. Patients can be monitored through a high tech center called Stroke Central. Learn more about this program and the patients it can benefit in this video.
