PHC Hosts Hatzolah For Stroke Presentation


Michael Franklin, M.D., Director of Peninsula Hospital Center's Emergency Medicine Department, gave a presentation on the topic of stroke emergency care to more than 40 members of the Hatzolah Ambulance Corps. The CMEcredit lecture given by Dr. Franklin was designed to facilitate a medically smooth transition from ambulance to emergency room. Peninsula Hospital Center is the New York State DOH-designated stroke center in the Rockaways, so stroke victims are brought to its emergency room, where a special stroke team is in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "It certainly can improve patient outcomes when patients brought in by ambulance have received the best possible care during transportation. In the case of a stroke, we go by the very accurate phrase "Time is Brain" and the time spent in the ambulance on the way to the hospital is critical," explains Dr. Franklin.
