GET WITH THE GUIDELINES® – STROKE AWARD
San Antonio Regional Hospital’s stroke care has been recognized with the 2020 Get With the Guidelines® - Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award.
San Antonio Regional Hospital’s stroke care has been recognized with the 2020 Get With the Guidelines® - Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The award is given to hospitals that demonstrate 85 percent or higher compliance in each of the Association’s seven Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke achievement measures. Hospitals with Gold status have demonstrated this compliance for 24 consecutive months.
When treating a possible stroke, seconds count. The guidelines were developed to improve stroke care by promoting consistent adherence to the latest scientific treatment guidelines which help speed the delivery of treatment for patients. San Antonio’s stroke response team members work diligently to reduce treatment time – from the moment the patient arrives in our emergency department until the medical team can diagnose a stroke and administer the lifesaving tPA clot-busting drug. This reduces the disabling effects of stroke and saves lives.
