Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus, was awarded the Get With the Guidelines-Resuscitation Silver Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who have cardiac arrests at the hospital.

The recognition also signifies the hospital achieved quality metrics for cardiopulmonary resuscitation practices based on AHA guidelines consistently for one year. The Get With the Guidelines-Resuscitation program was developed with a goal of saving the lives of those who experience in-hospital cardiac arrests.

The AHA’s Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation program is one set of guidelines Bayhealth uses to develop and implement protocols for reducing disability and death from cardiac and respiratory emergencies. This evidence-based quality improvement program can result in better patient outcomes, with more patients surviving cardiac arrest and eventually being discharged from the hospital.
