      Does your team do stroke alert debriefings? How and when do you do it?

      We don’t routinely do Stroke Alert debriefing, however, recently we conducted one and found multiple opportunities for improvement that lent itself to easy and immediate fixes that were helpful. Because of this I anticipate we will start doing it more often…. We also just recently conducted a Mock Code Stroke in the ED with 2 different scenarios, one with a patient presenting via EMS and one with a patient presenting POV. We immediately debriefed and I was able to type up our “did wells” and our “OFI’s”. I plan on reviewing these at our next Stroke team meeting. The value of debriefing with feedback from all parties and departments involved has been a game changer in process improvement and general buy in from the staff. I recommend the sooner the better for debriefing, of course while “reading the room” after the patient is stable. Take notes and give good feedback for suggestions.

      These are great suggestions Gina. I love using the “did wells” and “OFIs”. Having someone to document the findings is crucial to giving good feedback.

      Tracking mocks alert findings over time is a great way to show surveyors an improvement project. Some facilities give a point for each element then can come up with a score that can be easily graphed.
