In preparation for Platte Valley Medical Center’s Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center survey, Alex Graves, ANP, from the University of Colorado gave two lectures and demonstrations to hospital staff (March 28 and April 2) about strokes. Alex spoke about brain anatomy, neurologic assessment, stroke types and symptoms. There were about 70 in attendance including staff from EMS, ED, ICU, MSP, Physical Medicine, Nursing Administration and Utilization Review.
Comments from staff afterwards were; “This was really great!”, “I couldn’t believe we were finished.”, “I learned so much.”, “We need to do this again in a couple of years. This was so good.”
