Question: Patients transferred after t-PA

Should we include patients that receive IV t-PA in the ED then transferred to another hospital in the STK-4 measure population?These patients are directly transferred from the ED and not admitted to the hospital.

Answer:

Yes. The hospital that administered t-PA should include the case in the numerator, even though the patient was transferred to another hospital and not admitted.
