As a Primary Stroke
Center, Avista Adventist Hospital has an acute stroke response
team available around the clock. This team includes emergency medicine
specialists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, critical care
specialists, nurses and radiology technicians. Together, they provide immediate
and experienced stroke expertise to determine if the latest treatments—such
as clot-busting medications—can benefit a stroke patient. Advanced imaging
supports the interventions needed to open blocked arteries and restore blood
flow as quickly as possible.
Specialized care for stroke patients is provided in our acute
care unit, where patients receive coordinated care, comprehensive monitoring
and expert intervention from the multidisciplinary team. The unit is equipped
with state-of-the-science monitoring equipment and is staffed by a skilled and
experienced team of physicians, nurses, therapists and other medical support
professionals. Here, physicians, therapists and counselors provide
care to patients throughout their stay, a unique aspect that has been shown to
improve a patient's sense of well being and decrease the length of stay.
Experts from other medical disciplines are readily available for
consultation, further enhancing the recovery process, and promoting a faster
return to an optimal level of health and activity.
