DeWitt Stroke Services
Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt is implementing a Stroke Alert protocol on its campus. The new protocol for administering TPA, Tissue Plasminogen Activase, will bring more urgency to this time-sensitive care issue. By activating a stroke team including emergency services, nursing, lab, neurology, radiology, pharmacy and spiritual care, patients will receive a well-planned system of care. All evaluations and tests are to be completed within one hour of the time the patient arrives at the hospital.
