I am the stroke coordinator for my facility and I would like to know if any of your facilites have an actual pathway or algorithm geared towards the critical care. We are Hfap accredited, not Joint Commission and this is one of their specifications: The ICU shall have written care protocols for identification and tx of acute stroke patients which are available to ICU personnel, reviewed annually, and revised as needed.
Anyone who has something in place please share your resources.

My hospital is a comprehensive stroke center so yes we have a set stroke algorithm and protocols for those patients.
