When stroke hits, there’s not a minute to lose.

Stroke. Aneurysm. Transient ischemic attack. Neurological emergencies can come on hard and fast, often with little warning, and have the potential to leave you severely impaired.

When stroke occurs, efficient, expert treatment is necessary to prevent death or disability. You can count on the emergency department at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center to be ready when the worst happens.

Early care is essential. Act BEFAST


If you experience any of the stroke signs, or identify the signs in someone else, B.E. F.A.S.T. and dial 911.


Use the National Stroke Association’s B.E. F.A.S.T. test to help you remember the warning signs and symptoms of stroke:

  • Balance - Balance loss – Check to see if the person has trouble walking or standing up right
  • Eyesight - Eyesight loss – Is the person experiencing loss of eyesight?
  • Face - Facial weakness – Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
  • Arms - Arm weakness – Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
  • Speech - Speech problems – Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can the patient repeat the sentence correctly?
  • Time - If a person is having trouble with these basic commands, call 911 immediately.

“It happened so fast, without warning.”

When Alicia Didia started exhibiting signs of stroke, her sons recognized the symptoms and acted promptly. Within minutes, an ambulance arrived to take her to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.

“I was suffering from an ischemic stroke, which occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked. I was given an injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a clot-busting drug and blood thinner, and five minutes later, I was talking to him like nothing had happened,” says Didia.

“I want to thankthe stroke team at Palm Beach Gardens for their quick actions in diagnosing, treating and saving my life before it was too late.”
