If a total GCS is documented within 30 minutes of patient arrival, but the individual components of the score are not documented, can the total GCS be recorded in Collector?

Yes, if an incomplete GCS is documented, record as many of the GCS items as are available. This includes the Total GCS. You may record individual scores with a GCS of 3 [1,1,1] or 15 [4,5,6] recorded in the medical record.
