Emergency Medical Services Observational Experience

Norton Healthcare has launched a professional structured observation program for flight nurses, paramedics, EMTs and first responders to enhance their knowledge of stroke and learn more about the state-of-the-art treatment and interventions available at Norton Healthcare.

Participants will witness the full experience at Norton Brownsboro Hospital, a Comprehensive Stroke Center. From initial patient intake to operations in the biplane X-ray rooms, participants will see firsthand the diagnostic and interventional procedures performed and the leading-edge care provided by Norton Healthcare.

There will be opportunities to learn about advanced technology and imaging used during stroke procedures, and to meet the neurosurgeons and stroke team, including the advanced practice providers, stroke outreach coordinator, interventional radiology technicians, scrub technicians, nurses, nurse anesthetists and anesthesiologists.
