|/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.|
