Centres of Excellence

Ethekwini Hospital, the only KZN stroke hospital nominated for simulation, January 2017

 

Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre, a heart and stroke centre of excellence was the only hospital in KwaZulu-Natal to have been selectedto take part in a nationally driven stroke simulation (dummy patient run) project coordinated by Angels South Africa in conjunction with Boehringer Ingelheim Global Office and Angels Europe.

 

The entire simulation was recorded on a Go-Pro camera, which was later evaluated. According to feedback received from Angels Consultant: Spain Dr Eduardo Rodriguez, Angels Consultant: Russia Dr Maria Koneva; and Angels Team Leader: Western Europe Countries Dr Massimo Alberini, this simulation was a huge success, with the door to needle time being 30 minutes and 10 seconds.

 

EHHC Hospital Manager Niresh Bechan said, “Our stroke teams are well trained and experienced with dealing with stroke emergencies. Although the simulation at Ethekwini Hospital is almost half the expected door to needle time of 60 minutes, we have on record the door to needle time of 16 minutes in respect of an actual case.”

 

According to Angels, every 30 minutes a stroke patient who could have been saved, dies or is permanently disabled because they treated in the wrong hospital. One of the most important aspects that affect outcomes in stroke is time to treatment.

 

Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre have a dedicated stroke line number 086 13 44 237 which you are encouraged to remember or alternately save on your phone in case of a stroke emergency.
