Question: NIHSS time

The patient arrives at 0600. If MD writes NIHSS performed within 15 minutes of arrival, can you add 15 minutes to the arrival time for NIHSS time which would be 0615? Or do you have to use the note time which is 0830?


Ann, If documented within the body of the note, add 15 min. to the Arrival Time and use that time for the "Initial NIHSS Time". Thank you for your inquiry.
