The emphasis these programs place on deploying a disciplined management system, combined with the relevant clinical best practices, sets DNV stroke certifications apart from other programs. This distinction is awarded when a hospital meets national standards and guidelines for improving clinical outcomes for stroke patients and exercises critical elements for long-term success in improving outcomes.
Emergency room physicians work with neurologists and an interventional neuroradiologist, board-certified and specialty trained in neurovascular disease, to quickly assess and treat acute stroke symptoms and emergency neurology care. Improved quality outcomes due to accurate and speedy assessments, and administering of tPA treatment on ischemic attacks can result in minimizing neurological damage and mortality risks - in effect preserving proper nervous system functions.Sentara Leigh Hospital cares for patients with a variety of neuroscience-related diseases and disorders including: Brain Tumors Carpal Tunnel Surgery Pain Management Spinal Surgery – Complex and Simple Stroke Diagnostic Services CT/CTA Carotid Doppler Studies EEG MRI/MRA Mobile PET Scan Educational Materials Available by calling Sentara Neurosciences at 1-877-310-8713..
