Study: timing of stroke could impact recovery

Posted: Updated:

Not that you can really control it, but it turns out there is something to the "weekend effect" if you suffer a stroke.

A new British study in the "Archives of Neurology" found if you have a stroke on the weekend, you may face a steeper recovery curve.  Researchers looked at care for tens of thousands of stroke victims.

The results showed poorer outcomes and lower treatment levels on the weekend.
