The Get With the Guidelines Stroke Silver Plus award recognizes hospitals that achieve 85 percent or higher compliance to core standards of stroke care as outlined by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association stroke achievement measures for 12 consecutive months and achieve 75% compliance on at least five additional stroke quality measures during the same 12-month period. PVMC exceeded these requirements by achieving greater than 97% compliance on all of the stroke achievement measures and greater than 90% compliance on six of the stroke quality measures.
The Honor Roll Elite award recognizes our achievement in door to needle times for the administration of IV tPA (a clot buster). To achieve Stroke Honor Roll Elite, hospitals must administer clot-busting medication must within 60 minutes in at least 75% of acute ischemic stroke patients treated who are with IV tPA.
