Miriam Hospital receives 8th consecutive award for quality care
Date:5/27/2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I. The Miriam Hospital has received the Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award for using American Heart Association/American Stroke Association quality improvement measures when treating stroke patients. The distinction, which recognizes evidence-based clinical guidelines, acknowledges The Miriam's commitment to quality, excellent care. The hospital treats more than 600 stroke patients each year and has received the Gold or Gold Plus designation for stroke care every year since 2008.

"Receiving this acknowledgement from the Heart Association/American Stroke Association over the last eight years validates the proven, comprehensive model of care we use when treating our stroke patients," said Thomas F. Tracy, Jr., M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president of medical affairs at The Miriam Hospital. "Our exemplary team of physicians, nurses, and staff in The Miriam Stroke Center and Emergency Department work together as one to consistently administer the highest level of quality care."

The Get With The Guidelines-Stroke quality program embodies adoption of the latest, research-based treatment guidelines intended to speed recovery and reduce death and disability among stroke patients. In receiving the award, The Miriam met specific quality achievement measures for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients. These measures include achieving and sustaining 85 percent or higher adherence to specific evidence-based guidelines over 24 consecutive months and aggressively using medications and risk-reduction therapies aimed at reducing death and disability and improving stroke patients' lives.

The Miriam has also implemented other Get With The Guidelines-Stroke prevention measures, including customized education materials that encourage stroke patients to manage their risk factors, recognize stroke warning signs, and ensure they take medications appropriately. The Stroke Center
