St. Mary Mercy Livonia, a member of the Michigan Stroke Network, offers extensive resources to optimize care for stroke patients. From the moment a patient enters our Emergency Department, our board-certified physicians ensure our patients are urgently treated with the highest quality of care.
We all have a role in making health care safe - doctors, nurses and the entire health care team. You, as the patient, can also play a vital role in making your care safe by becoming an active, involved and informed member of your health care team. If you have questions about patient safety or patient care, speak to your doctors, therapists or nurses.
