When someone recognizes a possible stroke and calls 911, we can work together to minimize the problems associated with a “brain attack” and ensure the best possible outcome for the patient. We continually measure our performance in caring for stroke patients, and use our findings to improve the performance of the system as a whole. We also provide feedback to each of our providers so they can continue to provide high quality care. Our goal is to ensure that every patient receives the full spectrum of care every time.
