2012 AHA/ASA Guidelines for the Management of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage[1]

Hospital Characteristics and Systems of Care: Recommendations

Class I
"1. Low-volume hospitals (eg, <10 aSAH cases per year) should consider early transfer of patients with aSAH to high-volume centers (eg, >35 aSAH cases per year) with experienced cerebrovascular surgeons, endovascular specialists, and multidisciplinary neurointensive care services (Level of Evidence: B)"
Class IIa
"1. Annual monitoring of complication rates for surgical and interventional procedures is reasonable (Level of Evidence: C)"
"2. A hospital credentialing process to ensure that proper training standards have been met by individual physicians treating brain aneurysms is reasonable (Level of Evidence: C)"
