Stroke Program

It's important to recognize stroke-like symptoms and get to the closest emergency department fast. An easy way to remember is through the acronym BE FAST. B is for Balance - a sudden loss of Balance. E is for Eyes - a sudden change in vision. F is for FACE: Does one side of the patient?s face droop more than the other? A is for Arms: Can you raise both arms and keep them raised for 10 seconds? C is for Speech: Is the patient?s speech slurred more than usual? T is for Time: If you see any of these signs, it?s time to call 911.
