The NIHSS test focuses most of its items on the language abilities of the patient (7 of possible 42 points). So people whose stroke affects the left hemisphere (98 percent of people have their language abilities housed in the left hemisphere) tend to have higher scores than those whose stroke happened in the right hemisphere. This is why the NIHSS is better at predicting outcomes for patients with left hemisphere-centered strokes, rather than right-hemisphere ones.
