Abstract In-hospital strokes affect an estimated 35,000 to 75,000 people a year, occurring in 7% to 15% of patients already in the hospital for other causes. Strokes that occur in the hospital are often more severe and result in worse outcomes than strokes that occur outside the hospital. Although rapid recognition and assessment of in-hosptial stroke are critical to improved outcomes, a substantial number of patients experience long delays between sympton recognition and neurological evaluation. This program highlights the significant morbidity and mortality associated with in-hospital stroke, and details steps for rapid identification, assessment, and treatment, including a review of the new 2007 American Heart Association/American Stroke Association guidelines for the early management of adults with ischemic stroke.
