At the Neurology ward, we examine and care for patients with neurological diseases and symptoms. Typical health problems of our patients are disturbances of the blood circulation of the brain (stroke), brain tumors, epilepsy, inflammatory diseases of the central or peripheral nervous system and degenerative neurological conditions.
Most of our patients are referred from the Emergency Clinics and the Stroke unit, some patients come electively (as planned) by referral for a procedure or treatment.
Management and care are planned, executed and assessed individually for each patient in collaboration within the team involved: neurologists, neurology trainees, nurses, practical nurses, physiotherapists, ergotherapists and speech therapists. The overall care of the patient includes assessment of the need for continued treatment and rehabilitation. Our goal is to work in fruitful collaboration with the patient and the patient’s close relative / contact person. We respond to individual needs for instructions and guidance with the aim to discharge the patient smoothly and safely home or for continued care.
If needed, the patient may be transferred to the neurosurgical ward (TF3) for close follow-up of symptom development.
Our ward is a part of the Tyks Neurocenter.
T-hospital has many wards and outpatient clinics. The joint emergency services of the Turku region are also located in the T-hospital.
