Post-Operative Director Jackie Carr submitted the following story:
No matter where North Oaks Nurses find themselves, their calling to help
others is strong.
A trio of Surgical Services Nurses recently came across the scene of a
motor vehicle accident. Orthopaedics/Neuro Unit Staff RN Nicole, Surgery
Unit Staff RN Tara and Endoscopy Staff RN Alicia quickly jumped into action
to help Fire Department personnel care for the victim’s injuries,
reduce blood loss, monitor vital signs and provide comfort until Acadian
Ambulance Services arrived on the scene. They continued to assist EMS
after arrival, even helping to transfer the victim to a stretcher for
transport to the closest ER. Nicole, Tara and Alicia’s selfless
actions played a key role in the victim’s ultimate survival and
ongoing recovery from such a horrific tragedy.
