Background: Epidemiological transitions and widespread risk factors made stroke common health problem in sub-Saharan countries in the early age. Stroke management largely depends on non-drug interventions. Stroke care units are facilities in hospitals which increased patient survival, return home, and regain independence in daily activities. This study was aimed to assess clinical profile, in-hospital outcome and its associated factors of stroke after the start of a standard organized stroke care unit in the study area. Method: An institution based cross-sectional study was employed from July 2015 to September 2017. A total of 151 stroke patients with computed tomography (CT) scan result were included in the study. Data were collected using structured questionnaire from secondary sources of patient medical records. In-hospital mortality and poor post-stroke disability (greater functional impairment, when Modified Rankin Scale score (mRS) ≥3) were outcome variables. Binary logistic regression model was fitted to identify predictor variables. Adjusted Odds Ratio (OR) with a 95% confidence interval (CI) used to assess the strength of association. Variables with p-value less than 0.05 in the multi-variable regression model was considered as significantly associated with the dependent variables. Result: Ischemic stroke (60.3%) subtype was the most common. The median age at presentation was 65 (IQR: 55-75) years. Hypertension (49.7%) and carotid atherosclerosis (54.7%) were the most commonly identified risk factors. Overall in-hospital mortality was 9.3% (95% CI: 5.2%-15.1%), poor post-stroke disability was 55.6% (95%CI: 47.3%-63.7%), and median length of hospital stay was 10 (IQR: 7-14) days. Being male (AOR=0.19, 95%CI: 0.038 0.97), longer in-hospital stays (AOR=0.21, 95%CI: 0.048 0.93) were significant predictors of in-hospital mortality. Furthermore increased ICP (AOR=2.81, 95%CI: 1.22 6.92) was also the predictor of poor post-stroke disability at discharge. Conclusion: Ischemic stroke was the most common stroke subtype. In-hospital mortality was relatively lower. However, greater functional impairment was high at discharge. Stroke morality was observed lower among male and longer in-hospital stay patients, while evidence of increased intracranial pressure was associated with poor post-stroke disability at discharge.
