Outpatient clinic part of MLH stroke program
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Mary Lanning Healthcare is highlighting one of the newer services it has during National Stroke Awareness Month. The new service is an outpatient clinic that’s part of the hospital’s Joint Commission-Certified Primary Stroke Center.
MLH’s stroke center has been helping patients deal with the emergency side of stroke since 2011. Now, the MLH Stroke Team is also providing an outpatient Stroke Clinic for individuals who have suffered a stroke and are now looking at recovery.
Patients treated at MLH or any other hospital for their stroke emergency sometimes need guidance on the next steps, which may include physical, occupational and speech therapy, said Andrew McCarty, RN BSN SCRN LSSGB, MLH Stroke Program Coordinator.
“The multidisciplinary MLH Stroke Team can provide neurological services and assessments for rehabilitation,” McCarty said. “We can guide patients on the road to recovery, providing much-needed answers.”
