  /AB    Although recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of stroke are 
    available, the aim of this study was to identify indicators of quality and 
    risk management for acute ischemic stroke hospital patients. We conducted a 
    descriptive study of stroke patients who were diagnosed less than 12 hours 
    before admission to the Pitie-Salpetriere hospital's neurology and stroke 
    unit. Data were collected using a literature review and from existing 
    recommendation. During the study period (August 2003 through April 2005) 
    310 eligible patients were identified. In 87.5% of the cases, patients 
    suffered from a cerebral infarction and in 10.3% from an intracranial 
    haemorrhage. The initial deficit was mild to severe. The average time 
    between the first symptoms and admission in the stroke unit was 212 +/- 130 
    minutes. Forty percent of patients who underwent a thrombolysis did so 
    within the first 3 hours. The average length of stay in the stroke unit was 
    17.5 days. Thirty-one percent of the patients were discharged to go home, 
    47% to a rehabilitation unit and 8% died. Ten indicators of quality and 
    risk management are proposed, taking in account the events before 
    admission, hospital care, side effects, duration of stay, discharge 
    location and the handicap.
