Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City has garnered national recognition for its care of stroke patients.

The hospital received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, the highest honor given to participating stroke centers nationwide.

To receive the award, Banner Boswell achieved 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Quality Achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month intervals.

The hospital also achieved 75 percent or higher compliance with six of 10 Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Quality Measures, which are reporting initiatives to measure quality of care.  

These measures include aggressive use of medications, such as tPA, antithrombotics, anticoagulation therapy, DVT prophylaxis, cholesterol-reducing drugs and smoking cessation — all aimed at reducing death and disability and improving the lives of stroke patients.

Based on information from the American Stroke Association, the time soon after a patient has had a stroke is considered when they are most likely to listen to and follow their health care professionals’ guidance.

Studies demonstrate that patients who are taught how to manage their risk factors while still in the hospital reduce their risk of a second heart attack or stroke.

In addition to information provided by their physician and nurse, Banner Boswell patients receive clearly written patient education materials prior to going home.

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and serious, long-term disability in the United States.

On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.

In addition to earning this national recognition, Banner Boswell recently was recertified as a Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center.

    Pour cette raison, la structure devrait être acquise en grand nombre dès le début et construite massivement partout, et les joueurs devraient également se concentrer sur la mise à niveau leurs scieries rapidement afin de maximiser leur potentiel de production. Diamants devrait idéalement être dépensé sur la modernisation des scieries dès le début et pas les autres structures, comme ils sont également une ressource importante qui ne doit pas être gaspillée au hasard.
