The stroke/medicine unit is a mixed population unit that serves clients who have experienced an acute stroke or have an acute medical condition.
It is the goal of the interdisciplinary team to offer patient-centred care that adheres to care best practices in stroke and medicine. On admission to the unit, the care team will facilitate assessment, diagnosis and development of an individualized treatment plan.
Patients admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of stroke are transferred to 3East including those at both Markham and Uxbridge sites.
The interdisciplinary team on 3East consists of physicians, physician assistants, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, therapy assistants, speech language pathologist, social workers, patient flow coordinator, and LHIN home and community care coordinator and pharmacists.
