Abstract

This article tells how one hospital's process for emergency identification and treatment of inpatient stroke was developed. In addition this article presents the possibility that via the development of the inpatient stoke identification and treatment process more than the inpatient experiencing stroke benefit. Hospital caregivers, employees, volunteers, and others in contact with the inpatient side of the hospital help the community through their increased awareness of stroke, risk factors, its urgency, and of their responsibility to treat stroke as a "brain attack" and respond immediately.
