I wanted to take this opportunity to express how impressed I am with Brittany. Her attention to detail, persistent hard work, stellar communication and willingness to help in any way she can, has made this project not only obtainable, but streamlined and efficient. She is so good at what she does and I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of her for her guidance and unwavering support.
A Russian speaking patient (English was her second language) presented as a stroke alert last week and Dr. Vidgop was the responding TeleNeurologist. She was able to converse and explain the risks, benefits and alternatives to the patient in her native language with really put her at ease. It was wonderful to have the ability to serve our population in that way.
TeleSpecialists services have allowed us to improve our tPA administration times by drastically decreasing Door-To-Needle time and increasing tPA utilization. In addition, they have assisted in streamlining acute stroke transfer protocols for endovascular consideration from our surrounding primary and acute stroke ready facilities.
TeleSpecialists have improved our facility’s stroke response dramatically. We improved from administering live-saving drugs within 30 minutes 50% of the time to 80% of the time. Their physicians are an integral part of our Emergency Department team who assess the patient quickly and intervene. Our clinicians’ knowledge of stroke symptoms has increased because the TeleSpecialists talk through their assessment and treatment plans in a coordinated fashion with our team.
Tanya was not 100% coherent at that time and the doctor on the screen [Dr. Yelena Vidgop] made the right decision to give her that medication. Tanya spent about 48 hours in the hospital and then was released. She is doing great. We are actually doing some moving of boxes and other things today and she is keeping up with me. I think that the technology used is a great thing, we may have had to go hours away to get that care but because of the technology, we got it taken care of right here.
Using the Value Stream Mapping and the Post-it Notes helped us solve little problems that we didn’t even know existed…so that we could shave off every single second available, so that we could save as much brain as possible.
Using TeleSpecialists for acute stroke services at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center – Marshall has helped us provide our patients with neurological care at the bedside that would otherwise be unavailable. Through this service we are able to quickly evaluate patients for acute stroke while helping decrease door-to-needle times.
“We are so very pleased with TeleSpecialists service. Our times are so much better. We are hearing so many positive comments from our patients. Your physicians are wonderful and take their time with the patients.”
