In acute care, discharge planning is a primary role of OT for clients with arm impairment after stroke. Discharge planning accounts for many factors, including impairments, function, social supports, insurance, and the input of other disciplines. This research aimed to (1) determine the agreement in discharge recommendations between OT and physical therapy during acute hospitalization and (2) determine the agreement of OT recommendation and actual discharge setting for clients with arm impairment after stroke.
