GAINESVILLE – North Texas Medical Center teamed up with Cooke County EMS and CareFlite to perform a Code FAST Mock Drill on May 17. This allowed all three to practice the transport and treatment of a stroke patient.
The “patient” suspected of suffering from a stroke was picked up by EMS at the Gainesville QuikTrip and transported to the North Texas Medical Center Emergency Department. There she was administered a CT Scan and treated by our medical professionals before being transported via CareFlite to a comprehensive stroke center.
This is just one part of ongoing training that our medical professionals take part in to ensure they are providing the best care possible.
