The patient recovered from the stroke with limited damage resulting in a limp and nerve damage in one hand, but he is able to walk 2-3 miles several times a week. He attributes his successful outcome to having received tPA through access to the teleneurology system. He is thankful to the emergency physician, Dr. Gregory Driskell, for the critical care he received. 

I have been on service with Around the Clock for over a year. My LVN, Shanai, is a great nurse. She has taken care of the wounds on my legs for the entire time I've been with Around the Clock. Shanai provides excellent patient care and what even makes it better is that she personally cares about her patients too. She takes great pride in providing her patients with the best care available. She is a true asset to Around the Clock.

Door: The fourth step in the chain of survival is ‘door’, which refers to the arrival of the patient at the emergency room (ED). Ideally, the stroke team should be in place at the receiving facility prior to the patient’s arrival to ensure prompt assessment and diagnosis. According to recommendations from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, an assessment should be completed by an ER physician within ten minutes of arriving in the ED.
Data: Data collection is a vital component of the chain of survival. Data collection includes results from laboratory tests and both a physical and a neurological exam. A 12-lead electrocardiogram is recommended to rule out cardiac arrhythmias. In addition, a CT scan is an essential piece of the puzzle and is needed for an accurate diagnosis. A CT scan should ideally be performed within 25 minutes of arrival in the emergency room. Data collected is also needed to rule out conditions which may mimic a stroke, such as a brain tumor, drug overdose or hypoglycemia.

When a patient comes into the emergency department at any Forrest Health hospital with the symptoms of an acute ischemic stroke, a computer with an advanced webcam will be brought to the bedside where the clinical team will connect with a neurologist on call at Ochsner.  The neurologist, patient and clinical team can see and speak to each other throughout the consult.  The physician will examine the patient and review the CAT scan of the patient’s head, providing guidance on advanced treatments within minutes.


U Care was developed in partnership with Lacuna Health, a subsidiary of Kindred Healthcare, to follow up with patients after they leave the hospital. Registered nurses with U Care reach out to patients by phone on a regular schedule to monitor the patients’ recovery progress, check their medications, ensure they have made appropriate follow-up appointments and answer any questions or health concerns that arise. The nurses have access to the patients’ health records and can escalate any concerns to hospital staff or physicians if a patient requires further clarification or intervention. The program pilot, which began in June, will follow 250 stroke patients for 45 days after discharge, whether they went home or to a rehab facility for recovery.

“We are currently negotiating funding with the HSE, to further develop the service so that it’s rapidly available to everybody,” says Thornton. “We began the service without any additional funding or new structures in place. There are charities such as the Irish Heart Foundation that are currently in the process of reviewing guidelines to publish a formal protocol for patients and doctors on how to approach and deal with a large-vessel stroke. But we need the HSE to formally recognise the importance of medical thrombectomy and to support urgent development of the service because it is essential that stroke patients in Ireland are getting the best standard of care possible.”
The GWTG-Stroke program is a voluntary program created by the American Heart Association and made available to all hospitals in the U.S. in 2003. To receive a PAA from the program, participating hospitals must meet each of seven individual performances measures -- such as prescription of anti-thrombotic medication within 48 hours of admission -- in 85% of hospitalizations for at least 1 year.
Aged care in Australia is designed to make sure that every Australian can contribute as much as possible toward their cost of care, depending on their individual income and assets.[24] That means that residents pay only what they can afford, and the Commonwealth government pays what they cannot. An Australian statutory authority, the Productivity Commission, conducted a review of aged care commencing in 2010 and reporting in 2011. The review concluded that approximately 80% of care for older Australians is informal care provided by family, friends and neighbours. Around a million people received government-subsidised aged care services, most of these receiving low-level community care support, with 160 000 people in permanent residential care. Expenditure on aged care by all governments in 2009-10 was approximately $11 billion.[25]

Around the clock care is ideal for someone coming home from the hospital after surgery, suffering from a debilitating condition such as a stroke, or someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related conditions and is at risk when left alone unattended. Around-the-clock care is also a good option for family caregivers who need a break or will be away on vacation. Some families even opt for around-the-clock care to ensure their loved one has someone to assist them with the activities of everyday life, to escort them to appointments and outings and to provide care and support as required.
