When an inpatient strokes more than once during their stay, both occurrences of stroke (providing the strokes are separate events) should be recorded. The dataset will not allow two records to be created for the same person with the same date and time of arrival, this is to ensure duplicate records are not created. In order to capture both events, you should therefore enter the date of arrival for the second stroke as the day after arrival. Time of arrival should remain the same.
