Question : From where can I get detail about FIM Scores as an Indicator of Length of Stay and Discharge Destination in CVA Patients.

Answer : You want to know information about FIM Scores as an Indicator of Length of Stay and Discharge Destination in CVA Patients so here is its information:

The Functional Independence Measure (FIM) scale is used in in-patient occupational therapy to measure progress of functional skills such as dressing, bathing, and eating. The recent changes in healthcare, transitioning from fee-for-service to capitative service delivery model, are requiring therapists to advance their skills in the area of prognostics. If the FIM can be used as an outcomes predictor, therapists may more accurately determine patient outcomes, and upon admission, address the psychosocial effects of transition from hospital to discharge placement early in treatment.
