To establish a strong, collaborative relationship between St. Cloud Hospital Stroke Center, St. Cloud Hospital Emergency Department and Emergency Medical Services.
Two separate health care systems with one goal in mind: best stroke care for a community member experiencing stroke-like symptoms.
Current Practice in 2017:
- Code stroke activation with LTKW (last time known well) up to 6 hours.
- Inconsistent pre-notifications and pre-activations by EMS and ED.
- St. Cloud Hospital and Mayo Clinic Ambulance with siloed/individualized protocols for their respective health systems.
