There are two 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.
