Good Morning All!

  This question has me stumped.  My patron wants to know:   if a 3-4 week delay after inpatient rehab for stroke patients would be of detriment  or delay outcomes and recovery?

  All I am finding is that rehab should start as soon as possible during the inpatient period and continue as long as needed, depending on patient needs.  I am not finding any specific references to the month after discharge from an inpatient facility and that is the only time frame she is looking at.

Am I missing something?

Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
