Pittsfield: BMC gets award for stroke care
Berkshire Medical Center has received national recognition for the care of stroke patients for the 10th straight year from the American Heart Association.
BMC has received the Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award, which recognizes the medical institution's commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted guidelines.
Get With The Guidelines-Stroke helps BMC's staff develop and implement acute and secondary prevention guideline processes to improve patient care and outcomes. The program provides hospitals with a web-based patient management tool, best practice discharge protocols and standing orders, along with a robust registry and real-time benchmarking capabilities to track performance. The quick and efficient use of guideline procedures can improve the quality of care for stroke patients and may reduce disability and save lives.
