For mood and cognition screens for community teams, will the webtool pre-populate with dates of the screens if already completed during the acute stay?
No, this data will not carry over from the acute teams. It is expected that the post-acute teams perform an additional mood and cognition screen.
Question 4.9.1: If not screened, what was the reason?
This question refers to why patients have not been screened by a mood and cognition tool and follows on from Question 4.9; Date patient screened for mood using a validated tool. There are the following options to answer this question with:
Not Known: If there is no known reason for the screen being performed.
Organisational Reasons: This is answered if there is any issue within the service such as staff not being available. Or the patient had been screened earlier in the stroke pathway and did not have a deficit at time of arrival at the service. We encourage services to screen all patients.
Patient Refused: If the patient refuses for any reason, then select this option.
Patient medically unwell for entire admission: If a patient is medically unwell for the admission, and is deemed to be unable to tolerate the screen, then this answer should be selected.
