San Antonio Community Hospital is a Certified Primary Stroke Center
providing care that meets the highest national standards for stroke treatment.
Stroke victims typically have a crucial three-hour window to receive the most
effective treatment. Receiving designation as a Primary Stroke Center means
that San Antonio has proven it provides rapid, state-of-the-art care to stroke
victims, significantly improving their outcomes.
Another outstanding feature of our Stroke Program is the
availability of specially trained Nurse Navigators who are Registered Nurses.
These RNs closely follow every patient and collaborate with the patient and their family on a plan of care. They help prepare for any procedure
that is necessary, for example the administration of medication to dissolve a
clot in the brain. The RN also provides
education to the patient and family and helps with discharge needs to prepare
for the transition home.
