A Game Changer for Stroke TreatmentPatients with severe strokes have far better outcomes when treated with a drug to dissolve a blood clot and a procedure to dislodge and remove it.
Rush Clinic Takes Off at O'HareA partnership between a Chicago-area business and the Rush University College of Nursing has provided one group of workers not only free health services, but advocacy for care.
The types of patients that I see at Rush as a generalist obstetrician/gynecologist are, for the most part, obstetrical patients—patients that are pregnant. My role is to reassure the patient and guide them through that nine months and make sure that they’re feeling confident as they go from appointment to appointment.
It’s important, number one, to make the patient feel very comfortable. Number two, address their issue. And, number three, be accessible for their questions and for their concerns. And, I think once you develop that relationship, the patient feels comfortable with you and your decisions and your treatment guidance—and they come back and they remain your patient for a long time.
