Repeat Head CT – Diane

Trauma surgeons discussed this morning and agreed:

If at neuro baseline or GCS 15 (ie NO CHANGE or alteration of mental status)


Family is reliable to monitor for neuro changes


Initial head CT is negative

AND INR is within normal therapeutic range OR lower,

Then patients may be considered for discharge to home without follow-up CT.
