FAIRFIELD — NorthBay Healthcare has received American Heart Association recognition for its treatment of patients who suffer cardiac arrest in the hospital.
It received the Get With the Guidelines – Resuscitation Silver Quality Achievement Award for following American Heart Association guidelines. These guidelines include protocols for patient safety, medical emergency team response, effective and timely resuscitation and post-emergency care, a NorthBay press release said.
“Shortening the time to effective resuscitation and maximizing post-resuscitation care is critical to patient survival,” said Deepak L. Bhatt, national chairman of the Get With the Guidelines steering committee, in the release.
NorthBay also won the award in 2013.
