Acute Stroke Timer

Acute Stroke Timer is a tool designed by and for bedside nurses to aid in meeting the best practice target times for care of stroke patients. Among these recommendations is creating a process for achieving door to thrombolytic treatment in less than one hour.

The goal of this tool is to keep the bedside nurse aware of approaching deadlines for benchmarked processes as well as to quickly and easily record the time of benchmarked events for later documentation. Elegant and simple, this tool is not “one more thing to do” but is instead a welcomed assistant to improving the care of and outcomes for acute stroke patients.
