In the article by Middleton et al (Middleton S, Grimley R, Alexandrov AW. Triage, Treatment, and Transfer: Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Recommendations and Models of Nursing Care for the First 72 Hours of Admission to Hospital for Acute Stroke. Stroke. 2015;46:e18–e25. DOI: 10.1161/STROKEAHA.114.006139.), which published online ahead of print January 6, 2015, and appears in the February 2015 issue of the journal, a correction was needed.
On page e18, in the Triage and Rapid Management section, first paragraph, line 8, “It has been estimated that each 15 minutes of treatment delay results in 1 month of additional disability-free life after a stroke.20,” has been changed to read, “It has been estimated that each 15 minutes decrease in treatment delay results in 1 month of additional disability-free life after a stroke.20”
The authors regret the error.
