Heart Attack Rating
A heart attack (also called AMI or acute myocardial infarction) happens when the arteries leading to the heart become blocked and the blood supply is slowed or stopped. Some of the heart attack standards of care include:
- Patients given aspirin at discharge.
- Patients given fibrinolytic medication within 30 minutes of arrival.
- Patients given PCI within 90 minutes of arrival.
- Patients given medication to lower bad cholesterol levels (Statin) at discharge
The quality rating for heart attack measures compliance with the standards.
