Life saving heart care with "Door-to-Balloon" time that is better than the national average
If an individual has a blocked artery, timely treatment is critical. The period of time from patient arrival at the hospital to the opening of a blocked artery with a balloon catheter is known as “door-to-balloon” time. National studies have proven the shorter the door-to-balloon time, the greater the chance of patient survival. Lifesaving cardiovascular care at ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital is performed within an average of 57.21 minutes of arrival. This far exceeds the national standard of 90 minutes set by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association for the treatment of heart attack victims and improves the outcomes of our patients.
Recipients of the American Stroke Association's Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award
ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital is a recipient of The American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines – Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite designation. The designation means that Waukesha Memorial met quality measures developed to reduce time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with tPA, the only FDA-approved drug to treat ischemic stroke. If given within three hours after stroke symptoms start, tPA significantly reduces the chance of permanent disability as a result of stroke.
ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital also has received the American Stroke Association's Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. To meet this goal, Oconomowoc Memorial achieved 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get with the Guidelines – Stroke achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month periods.
