There are several possible options for this scenario.
Option 1: If the first admitting hospital is registered on SSNAP then they should start a stroke record. Sections 1, 4, and the transfer information in section 7 should be answered. Question 2.4 ‘Date and time of first imaging after stroke’ should also be answered by the first admitting hospital. The patient record can then be transferred to the next team treating the patient.
Option 2: If the first admitting hospital is not registered on SSNAP, then the team to which the patient is transferred following the scan should start the record, entering the patient’s scan time as one minute after the arrival time at the second team.
Option 3: If the stroke patient had their scan by a non-admitting team before being transferred to another hospital, then the admitting team should start the record and enter the time of scan as 1 minute after arrival at the admitting hospital.
Option 4: For thrombectomy patients ONLY: the SSNAP record should be started by the team performing the initial assessments. If your team sees the patient first and performs the initial assessment (even if they were not admitted to the hospital) you should start the record and then transfer to the thrombectomy centre.
