Dayana Portela Stroke Patient Testimonial Featuring TeleSpecialists’ Own, Nicole Hernandez
On August 11, Dayana Portela found herself grappling with a sudden onset of a headache accompanied by numbness on the left side of her body. She quickly realized she was experiencing a stroke and reached out to a family member to take her to a hospital. This family member happened to be Nicole Hernandez, who works for TeleSpecialists.
Upon Dayana’s arrival at the emergency room, medical professionals promptly activated a stroke alert and administered Tenecteplase, quickly addressing the stroke and causing the symptoms to dissipate. Dayana was able to return to her normal, active life without the fear of enduring the aftermath of a debilitating stroke.
For Nicole, this experience marked a profound full-circle moment. From the vantage point of a TeleSpecialists professional, she had witnessed firsthand the organization’s mission to impact and save lives across the country. However, on this occasion, Nicole found herself on the other side, experiencing the tangible impact of TeleSpecialists’ commitment to excellence in healthcare, making the mission to save lives more personal and resonant than ever before.
