Focus

These should be promptly written using the .QUIPDOCSTROKEDC smartphrase and may be used as the day’s note. Please use precise terminology for the discharge diagnosis, such as “ischemic stroke,” “transient ischemic attack,” “migraine with aura,” “conversion disorder,” etc. Do not use lengthy descriptors such as “Left sided stroke involving the subcortex and internal capsule.” Note that if any symptoms remain, then the diagnosis is not TIA, but stroke.
