Stroke Education

Get With the Guidelines!

Get With the Guidelines helps ensure continuous quality improvement of acute stroke treatment and ischemic stroke prevention. It focuses on care team protocols to ensure that patients are treated and discharged appropriately. The goal of the program is to improve the overall quality of care for stroke patients by improving acute stroke treatment and preventing future strokes and cardiovascular events.

As part of its commitment to the community and in pursuit of clinical excellence, St. Joseph Hospital has refined its processes, protocols and systems, and implemented changes on its pathway to becoming a Primary Stroke Center.

As a Get With The Guidelines-Stroke participating hospital, St. Joseph Hospital is continuing to develop a comprehensive system for providing rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke when patients are admitted to the emergency department.
