A quantitative non-experimental descriptive survey method was used and data was gathered by means of a checklist through observations en_US
dc.description.abstract Nursing care on forty (40) patients admitted with CVA in the general medical wards, intensive care unit and high cost wards were observed and the study revealed that CVA patients received poor nursing care. It was recommended that all CVA patients be assessed for neurological status and be regarded as "at risk" patients unless otherwise stated. Furthermore, regular inservice education sessions should be provided for staff nursing these high risk patients en_US
