Title:
Stroke Pathway: Beginning to End
Abstract:
Stroke Pathway: Beginning to End
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Smith, Karen
P.I. Institution Name:The Methodist Hospital
An individual presenting with a diagnosis of stroke is no longer considered an untreatable event. Rapid assessment and treatment are necessary to provide state of the art, high quality care to patients. The Baylor/Methodist Stroke Center was developed to lead all areas of stroke research. An integral component of the stroke center is a coordinated, multidisciplinary system to respond to individuals presenting with stroke symptoms. Stroke clinical pathways were developed by the stroke committee at The Methodist Hospital (TMH), Houston, Texas to provide patients the highest quality patient care, standardize patient education materials and retrieve data for quality outcomes monitoring. Incorporated into the pathway was the National Institute of Health (NIH) stroke scale. The NIH stroke scale is used nationally as a standardized scale to assess the stroke patient’s level of consciousness and performance from a neurological perspective. Nurses at TMH document using a computer integrated system and the scale was added to the assessment package. Prior to its use, nurses on identified units were offered classes on the use and documentation requirements of the scale. Data from the computer generated documentation system are used to generate a stroke report card. The stroke report card monitors benchmarks, thresholds and targets for patient outcomes. Methodist Hospital was recently recognized by HCIA-Sachs Institute as one of the top 100 hospitals for stroke care in the country.
