ICU Nurse Receives Lifesaver Award From EMS

Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY AUG 17, 2019

The Lifesaver Award is presented to non-EMS individuals that have been an active participant in the care of a cardiac arrest patient. The patient must then recover and be discharged from the hospital neurologically intact. This award is generally given to ER and possibly cath lab staff as part of a cardiac save, but last week it was awarded to an ICU RN from LWR. Sammie Billman, RN was in the right place at the right time in May (Bradenton Yacht Club) and provided bystander CPR until EMS arrived and took over the care of this patient. The patient was then discharged from MMH neurologically intact. Kudos to Sammie!
