Team of the Month: July 2015
Emergencies don't always happen in the emergency department. One spring day at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, a desperate community member pulled up to the front entrance with an unresponsive passenger.
The hospital staff immediately stepped into action to respond to the emergency outside of the hospital walls. Julie Maloof, RN, clinical practice lead, immediately called 911 and found medical assistance. Meanwhile, Lisa Duffy, MSN, RN, APRN-BC, director of inpatient nursing services, attempted to clear the patient's airway. Members of the emergency department arrived on the scene, including Hina Malik, MD; George Wright, CNA; Isabel Pore, RN; Priya Pudasaini, MHA, MT, laboratory operations manager; and Alicia Warner, RN. The team immediately transferred the patient to the ED where he successfully received care. During this time, Melissa Reppucci, compensation and benefits representative, noticed a child in the vehicle and kept her company until her family returned.
Team Rescue is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of Hallmark Health employees who knew what to do in a nonstandard emergency situation and collaborated with effective, efficient medical care.
