This information was very good. As nurses, we are certainly aware of the neglect stroke patients demonstrate. I worked in a facility that was certified as a stroke center, but the only assessment we were required to use was the NIH stroke scale. The cancellation tests reviewed in this article certainly would help access functional deficits stroke patients exhibit with more specificity.
