Stacie Lovato

Stacie Lavato

Stacie Lovato was a 38 year old wife, mother and Sergeant in the US Air Force. After she reported to the ER with symptoms of a stroke, she and her husband waited for hours for treatment. The corporate owned hospital had no systems in place to ensure that stroke patients were evaluated to determine if they were eligible for a clot busting, life-saving medicine. By the time the family learned at another hospital about the availability of the medicine, it was too late for Stacie, who died, leaving her adoring husband, two boys, and many friends and colleagues grief-stricken.
