[ARCHIVED] Special Recognition

Fire Employees recognized

Recently, several NRH public safety team members were recognized by Medical City North Hills for their efforts that helped save a life! 

Dispatcher Haley Hansen received a 9-1-1 call on the morning of February 19. A wife had found her husband unresponsive. Dispatcher Haley carefully and quickly gathered information for the responding personnel and immediately began CPR instructions. The wife (who had never done nor received any CPR training) began performing CPR on her husband. Haley's thorough and persistent instructions kept the wife focused on this lifesaving measure until the crew arrived. 

The call came in at 8:28 am, and A-shift M221 and Q224 arrived on the scene by 8:34 am. By 8:35, they reached the patient. After three shocks and intubation, they began their transport to Medical City North Hills at 8:37. The medic team maintained continual care on the way to the hospital to stabilize the patient and fight to save his life. Just after 9 am, the emergency room staff took over the care and had a "ROSC" or return of spontaneous circulation by 9:17 am.

90% of patients who suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die, but they are five times more likely to survive if bystander CPR is done.   Medical City North Hills William Harn shared that each member that day was integral in the "beautiful dance of life-giving we get to be a part of." 

Thank you, Medical City, for recognizing the team's efforts and bringing them together to see how well he's doing!
