QEH moves to reduce strokes
On average there are at least two strokes in Barbados per day.
And chief executive officer of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), Dexter James, said this year they would be embarking on a mission to produce better outcomes for the rising number of stroke patients.
James made the announcement recently at the Courtyard by Marriot during a cocktail reception for officials from Yale University which has joined the QEH in a health alliance.
“January to June 2011; in six months we had about 435 strokes,”?James said.
