Blanchard Valley Hospital Receives Stroke Distinctions

Blanchard Valley Hospital has recently been named a recipient of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus, as well as the Stroke Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award. These awards recognize the hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to national guidelines and standards.

Blanchard Valley Hospital earned the Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus achievement by meeting specific quality measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients. These measures include proper use of medications, making sure stroke treatments align with the most up-to-date guidelines, and meeting a goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Before discharge, patients also must receive education on managing their health and other care transition interventions.

“Blanchard Valley Hospital is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our stroke patients by implementing the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Initiative,” said Cody Price, chest pain/stroke programs coordinator. “The tools and resources the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association provides, help us track and measure our success by meeting evidenced-based clinical guidelines, developed to improve patient outcomes.”
