Do you know how to identify a stroke F.A.S.T.?
As a Primary Stroke Center, our team provides effective, timely care and can significantly improve clinical outcomes for stroke patients. Duke Regional has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval in recognition of our commitment to quality care for stroke patients.
When a stroke patient arrives in our Emergency Department, we issue an alert called a Code Stroke. This alert notifies a neurologist, the Lab and Radiology departments, nurses and other providers that a potential stroke patient is in the hospital. This process helps ensure fast, efficient care. Duke Regional also has a dedicated stroke unit staffed by nurses specially trained in caring for stroke patients.
