The article discusses the study by L. Turner-Stokes and colleagues published in the May 2006 issue of the "Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry," which discusses the cost efficiency of neurorehabilitation. Assessment of the patient's dependency was used to estimate the daily cost of care. Dependency of admission were compared to those at discharge and the reduction in daily continuing care cost were calculated
