Asked by drhat77 (6188points) May 5th, 2014

This is a calculator to help guide stroke treatment. There is a question field regarding preadmission disability with only one option, “dependant”, but I have no clue what that means. Thanks guys.

I would take it to mean the amount of assistance someone needs with daily activities of living.

I understand this to be asking whether prior to admission you had a disability that makes you dependent on a caregiver.
