The impact of one's sex and social living situation on rehabilitation outcomes after a stroke.
The goal of this retrospective observational study was to investigate sex differences and the impact of social living situation on individual functional independence measure outcomes after stroke rehabilitation. Subjects were Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries discharged from inpatient rehabilitation facilities after a stroke. Results showed that when sociodemographic and clinical factors were controlled, females were more likely to discharge from inpatient rehabilitation at a supervision level or better for most functional independence measure items. Individuals who lived alone before their stroke had higher odds of discharging at a supervision level or better.
