dc.description.abstractCertification of hospitals was examined in the specific areas of stroke and chest pain. Specifications of what defines the different types of stroke and myocardial infarctions (heart attacks) were also examined in detail. The mandatory certification and medical staff education requirements were reviewed from The Joint Commission and The American College of Cardiology. The findings suggest that patient outcomes are improved and teamwork among caregivers is enhanced from hospitals that have implemented certification. Certification gives hospitals the tools such as specific work organization, staffing, checklists, and evidence-based treatment plans that help guide the physicians and medical staff in the care of stroke and chest pain patients. Analysis of the research suggests hospitals should become certified in stroke and chest pain in order to improve patient outcomes.en_US
