To earn Primary Stroke Certification, a hospital must undergo a rigorous analysis, demonstrating compliance and excellence in three important areas of stroke care:
- Compliance with evidence-based national standards
- Effective use of clinical practice guidelines to both manage and optimize care
- Demonstrated measurement and improvement in the care provided to stroke patients
