Add a Stroke Assessment

If you perform a stroke assessment on a patient, you can use the Stroke tab in the New Assessment window to thoroughly document the results. Supported stroke scales include the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale, Los Angeles Prehospital Stroke Screen (LAPSS), NIH Stroke Score (NIHSS), Rapid Arterial Occlusion Evaluation Scale (RACE), and the Texas Stroke Intervention Prehopsital Stroke Scale.

See Assessment Fields for detailed descriptions of specific fields and shortcuts that can help you complete certain sections in the Stroke tab.
