My practice really is focused on taking care of patients with blood vessel diseases of the brain and spine. When dealing with the brain and spine there really is — every decision there’s so much at stake. There’s really no room for error.
When you’re at a place like this, probably one of the biggest assets is really your colleagues — getting everybody else involved, making sure that they are all going through their checklists, and are able to communicate easily within the organization. If all that leads to the team doing better, I know for a fact that that’s going to be even more powerful to helping improve the odds for a good patient outcome.
