Question: What would I document as Last Known Well?

If a patient presents to the hospital for other unrelated complaints and with no neurological deficits, but later has an in-house stroke, what do I answer as Last known well?

Answer:

Rebecca, If there is no documentation that Last Known Well or stroke signs/symptoms occurred prior to hospital arrival but there is documentation that Last Known Well first occurred after Arrival Time (e.g., in-house stroke), select “No.”

Thank you for your inquiry.
