THE CODE STEMI PROJECT: Winning the Race CODE STEMI: The PinnacleHealth Experience Donald C. Durbeck, MD., FACC
Evidence Based Approach Bradley EH, Curry LA, Webster TR, et al. Achieving Rapid Door-to-Balloon Times: How Top Hospitals Improve Complex Clinical Systems. Circulation 2006;113:
Create a Task Force Senior Administration Support Key Stakeholders Weekly Meetings Dashboard Physician Champion Nurse Champion Quarterly Users Meeting
Data Drives Us Initiated by ED nurse Forms kept in bin in cardiac bay Clip-on digital clocks placed on clipboard Form, clipboard, and clocks travel with patient to the cath lab Cath Lab faxes completed form Performance Improvement confirms time with scanned medical record and enters into data base
Immediate Feedback EARLY CASES
Immediate Feedback RECENT CASES
Immediate Feedback Be transparent, list names Bar graphs and Calendar feedback updated within one working day of case Both are ed to all members of the project Assign follow-up tasks Posted for front-line staff Ensure EMS providers also receive feedback

Scripted Education PROCEDURE FOR EMERGENCY CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION Your physician believes you are having a heart attack. A heart attack occurs when an artery supplying the heart muscle becomes blocked with a blood clot. A heart attack can lead to permanent heart damage and represents a risk to your life. When treating a heart attack, time is of the essence. It is believed that if the clogged artery can be opened, the damage can be lessened and your risk of disability and death may be reduced. Your physician is proposing that you have a procedure called a cardiac catheterization. The goal of this procedure is to identify which artery of your heart is causing the attack. It is performed by a specially trained cardiologist. The procedure is done by placing a tube in an artery in your leg under local anesthesia. Dye is injected into to the arteries of your heart using x-rays. The discomfort from the procedure is generally minor. You will be given sedation as necessary. The cardiologist will attempt to identify the artery with a blood clot and re-establish blood flow by placing a small metal tube called a stent into the artery. You will receive medications to thin your blood……. INTERVENTIONALIST OBTAINS CONSENT
Arrival to Device Time Room ready during off hours 2 of 3 on call must be within 20 minutes All expected to be ready in 30 minutes Send patient as soon as 1 cath lab member in lab & interventionalist on site Intervene on culprit artery first minutes
Time to PCI
Analysis of Missed Opportunities Follow up missed opportunities ASAP Interview staff involved in case Follow all leads Take results of investigation to weekly task force meeting Keep running list of reason for misses Obtain necessary documentation for patient centered reason for delays
Patient Related Delays, excluded Required Resuscitation Patient did not give consent Needed CT Scan to rule out dissection
System Delays, not excluded 99 minutes (Door to EKG = 30 min) - Known COPD smoker arrived via EMS with back pain and SOB. Symptoms improved with breathing treatment in ambulance 24 minutes -3 rd STEMI in a row on a Sunday. 112 minutes (EKG to Activation = 40 min) - 1 st EKG ST wave abnormality, hesitation to activate as it may have looked like pericarditis 103 minutes (Door to EKG = 40 min) – Female c/o bilateral arm numbness, mild SOB, dizzy 95 minutes (Activation to Arrival = 50 min) – Cardiologist saw patient in ED before activating the interventionalist.
Data Accuracy Abstractors send list of missed opportunities at end of month to compare with our on-going list Use QNET for resolution Prior to quarterly submission to Joint Commission vendor, run final list of misses to ensure mets/not mets are coded correctly
