Last winter Dr. Gilbert Teague began working with his VA facility’s team to implement the VA National TeleStroke Program. An army Veteran, Teague is chief of primary and specialty medicine at VA Black Hills Health Care System in Fort Meade, South Dakota. Teague knew this innovation would improve care to many Veterans, especially in rural areas like the Black Hills, but he did not expect it to save his own life two months later.
Teague suffered a stroke on January 24. He lost motor and language function the moment his stroke began, falling motionless to the floor of his home. Teague’s wife called the ambulance, which transported him to the Fort Meade VA Medical Center where he works. Upon his arrival at the facility, the VA team immediately recognized Teague’s symptoms as a stroke and called VA TeleStroke. The VA TeleStroke physician on duty, based in New Haven, Connecticut, connected to Teague and his onsite care team within minutes to examine him, review his medical history and brain imaging, and ultimately direct timely administration of the “clot-busting” medication alteplase. “Even though I hope no one is ever in need of TeleStroke services again, I will always be glad we implemented TeleStroke in VA Black Hills,” said Teague, who has fully recovered from his stroke and has returned to work at Fort Meade VAMC to provide care to Veterans.
