Outcomes

The Mount Sinai Comprehensive Stroke Center prides itself for maintaining a high standard of care when it comes to the management of patients diagnosed with stroke. We benchmark ourselves against other hospitals to ensure that compliance to the Joint Commission stroke core measures and other metrics remains high.

  Mount Sinai Hospital 2018 All hospitals participating in GWTG 2018
Stroke patients who antithrombotic (eg. aspirin) at discharge 100% 99.6%
Percentage of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients receiving nimodipine within the first 24 hours of admission. Evidence shows that nimodipine reduces the incidence of neurological deficits post SAH and had been shown to improve overall outcomes in this patient population. 97.0% 85.5%
Minutes from patient arrival to the start of procedure (groin puncture) for those undergoing emergent mechanical thrombectomy. 60 minutes 76 minutes
% of patients diagnosed with an irregular heart beat (atrial fibrialltion/flutter) who were prescribed anticoagulation (‘blood thinning’) medication at hospital discharge 100% 97.7%
% of patients who obtained TICI 2b/3 recanalization post endovascular therapy. A grade of TICI 2B or higher reflects successful cerebral reperfusion and is associated with positive outcomes for patients undergoing IA therapies undertaken within evidence based guidelines.  100% 92.2% (comprehensive stroke centers)
