Brain injury patients need support after hospital discharge

Patients in Georgia who have sustained severe acquired brain injuries face many challenges when they return home after a hospital stay. Families responsible for providing care at home also face challenges. Recently, researchers in Australia conducted a study on the outcomes of young patients that have been released from the hospital after suffering from an ABI.

Brain injury guidelines don’t correlate with results

Georgia residents may be interested in a recent study that found that compliance with treatment guidelines for brain injury patients does not necessarily lead to better results. Researchers from the Los Angeles Trauma Consortium looked at how closely treatment centers followed the guidelines and compared the rate of compliance with a center’s mortality rate.
