A question to the List.
We are a 24Hr/7Day Peds ED within a general ED. My question concerns
"Stroke Certification". Our main ED is stroke certified and all our
General EPs are NIHSS stroke certified, recently we had a teenager with a
traumatic carotid dissection and stroke symptoms, now the question is
should the Peds EPs be stroke certified. My thoughts are that this case is
not the intent behind the NIHSS Stroke Certification.
Any of you in a similar circumstance and what happened at your institution?
Thanks in advance.
