Stroke Transfer Care Packages
Stroke is a medical emergency with many of our patients requiring transfer to the Regional Stroke Unit (RSU) from the region for care. The Northwestern Ontario Regional Stroke Network (NWORSN) in collaboration with stakeholders such as Ornge have developed Stroke Transfer Care Packages to ensure that residents of Northwestern Ontario (NWO) receive information prior to their admission to the RSU at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC).
The Stroke Transfer Care Packages will support your patient transfer policy at the Emergency Department (ED) and / or Telestroke site for patients with acute stroke symptoms.
The package contains the following documents:
- Regional Stroke Care: Details about the health care team at the RSU, etc
- Welcome to the Regional Stroke Unit (RSU): Details about the RSU, etc
- Information about Travelling to Thunder Bay: Details about accommodations, etc
- Patient Transport FAQ (Ornge): Specifically the Getting Home section, etc
Please utilize the whole package by providing a copy to your patient / family member / care partner. It will provide education and support the flow of patient care based upon acceptance for a transfer to the RSU.
