Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital’s Stroke Care Has Earned Gold.

Apr 7, 2015
Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital’s stroke care has earned gold. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association recently presented the hospital with its Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus and Target: Stroke Honor Roll quality achievement awards.

This is the fourth consecutive year St. Mary’s has been honored for its continued implementation of national quality guidelines scientifically linked to improved treatment rates in stroke patients.

The AHA/ASA awards recognize St. Mary’s for complying with each of the association’s seven stroke achievement measures in at least 85% of eligible patients. Measures include:
  • Administering the blood clot-busting agent IV rt-PA within three hours of patient’s arrival.
  • Prescribing medication to prevent and/or reduce blood clots to patients by the end of their second day in the hospital or at discharge.
  • Providing advice or counseling on smoking cessation to patients with a history of smoking.
A full list of qualifications can be found on the American Heart Association’s website, heart.org.

“You often hear in stroke cases that ‘time lost is brain lost,’ and certainly it is critical that someone suffering a stroke is treated as soon as possible,” stated, Dr. Francisco Valdivia, medical director of the stroke program at St. Mary’s Hospital. “Just as important in improving the patient’s condition is the treatment they receive in the hours and days immediately after their stroke. This award proves our commitment to following the American Heart Association’s guidelines to care not only for the patient’s immediate, acute need, but to help prevent future strokes.”

“The team of professionals in our stroke program has done an outstanding job ensuring that the stroke care provided by St. Mary’s Hospital is among the best in the nation,” said Amy Beiter, MD, president and CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital. “Our repeat awards demonstrate that we are committed long-term to the health of our community; and further, that we will continue to pursue treatment that meets or exceeds proven national standards.”

According to the AHA/ASA, stroke is the number five cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.
