MCD was a critical partner in the development of our TPA Stroke Protocol which is now being used at the hospital. This was a complex and dynamic process involving critical communications with physician leadership and an overall plan to educate key staff within the hospital as well as the entire EMS Team. MCD was most helpful in developing a very strategic and workable plan.
