Board-Certified Neurologist - Requirement

Is access to a board-certified neurologist a requirement?

No, a board-certified neurologist is not a requirement. However, licensed independent practitioners must have 24-hour access to a timely, informed consultation about the use of IV thrombolytic therapy from a physician privileged in the diagnosis and treatment of ischemic stroke.
