    Abstract

    Clinical experience suggests that patients admitted to general medical wards will rarely undergo a neurological examination if the presenting complaint is perceived to be primarily non-neurological. With evolution of the presentation, any later formal neurological assessment not benefit from a record of the temporal evolution of the neurological signs. We present a rapid neurological screen which may ultimately be used in patients presenting without neurological symptoms and may improve recording of the neurological examination. In this study we performed initial validation for subjects with neurological symptoms presenting to our neurology unit.
