Question: CSTK 3

For clarification: Patients that have ICH score or SAH/HH score obtained prior to intervention but >6hrs from arrival time. Do they pass this measure? Example: arrival 7/8/16 @ 0022, HH documentation 7/8/16 @ 0739, pt to angio 7/8/16 @ 1127. Thanks

Answer:

The case will be included in the numerator population (E) because the score date and time are prior to the procedure data and time. Please refer to the CSTK-03 algorithm and trace the SG connectors (surgical path). Only procedures listed on Table 8.2d or Table 8.2e are included in the SG path. Non-surgical cases (NS path) must have the score documented within 6 hours (360 min).
