PHC Emergency Department Hosts Conference
Since Peninsula Hospital Center is the only designated Stroke Center for the Rockaways, Dr. Franklin provided continuing education to those in attendance to reinforce appropriate stroke protocols to ensure symptoms are being recognized as quickly as possible and that the best possible care can be given en route to PHC's Stroke Center.
"This continuing stroke education goes hand in hand with PHC's Stroke Center's designation. Appropriate recognition and initial treatment for stroke can directly impact on patient outcomes," explains. Franklin. "We want to make sure that our patients receive the best possible treatment and that includes treatment given by emergency service personnel prior to their arrival at the Hospital Center."
