Within the first 48 hours after stroke onset, 95{\%} monitor patients regularly, 94{\%} start mobilization after 24 hours when patients are stable and 89{\%} assess patients' ability to swallow. Change of position for immobile patients is followed by 73{\%}, and post-void residual urine volume is measured by 85{\%}. Some aspects needed improvement, for example staff education (70{\%}), education for patients/families/carers (55{\%}), and individual care plans in secondary prevention (62{\%}).CONCLUSIONS: The participating European countries comply well with the ESS guidelines, particularly in the acute stroke care, but not all stroke units have reached optimal development in all aspects of stroke care nursing.RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: Our study may provide clinical administrators and nurses in stroke care with information that may contribute to improved compliance with the European Stroke Strategies and evidence-based guidelines.
