Strokes don’t always show up o the first CT, that’s why you have a second one later or best an MRI. That’s what’s done at our hospital.Don't even get me started on that! When we were in Emerg yesterday they were all surprised that she was not put on blood thinners last week when she went to Emerg with atrial fibrillation. They missed the stroke on the CT yesterday morning. We've been talking about that a lot. How many pairs of eyes would have seen that? The Emerg doc? A radiologist? A nurse? Who knows. It is pretty negligent to have missed that. We have to wonder though how things might have played out of they had given blood thinners last week. We're thinking this was a pretty preventable stroke.
