When it comes to stroke, time is brain. Thanks to Nebraska Medicine – Nebraska Medical Center’s certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, we’re improving the lives of stroke patients throughout Nebraska. In January, a new protocol was put into place regarding the Omaha Fire Department’s transport of stroke patients. Paramedics now transport stoke patients who meet certain criteria to Nebraska Medical Center, no matter their location. That criteria includes a RACE score, which is a stroke severity scale, of five or greater. To schedule an appointment with a stroke specialist, call 800.922.0000.
