The Stroke Care That Saved A Patient’s Life

Friday, June 9, 2017 was a typical day at work for Delilah (Chris) Bell.  However, when Chris suddenly began to feel unwell, the day took a drastic turn.

“I was at work, and all of a sudden I started feeling really hot. I didn’t feel well,” says Chris. “I have an assistant so I told her that I did not feel well. She said to go home, but I said ‘No, I’m really sick. Call 911.‘”

As a former registered nurse, Chris knew the sickness that came over her was much more serious than a trip home. Chris was suffering a stroke.
