Quality outcomes and innovative treatment approaches are two of the main focuses of the catheterization lab. The interventional cardiologists on Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano medical staff and cath lab staff also place a high priority on patient safety and comfort. Safety and quality are carefully monitored by a panel of physicians who review every angioplasty procedure done in our hospital. All of these procedures are also reported to a national quality registry.
For the safety of our guests, the cath lab has initiated the “Stop the Line” process. If at any time during a procedure a staff member needs to stop a procedure for clarification, our team has the full and immediate support and attention of our medical directors. Guest safety is at the center of our patient care.
