  • Acute Stroke Response Team at Avista Adventist Hospital is Ready 24/7

    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.

    To remember the signs of stroke, think FAST:

    • F = FACE. Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
    • A = ARMS. Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? Is one arm weak or numb? 
    • S = SPEECH. Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Is speech slurred? Is the sentence repeated correctly?
    • T = TIME. If the person shows any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately!
