Dr. Bryan Dudoussat Goes Above and Beyond to Help Patient

Dr. Bryan Dudoussat Goes Above and Beyond to Help Patient
The following story was submitted by Orthopaedic/Neurosurgery Unit Charge Nurse Paige.

“A patient without any personal belongings and an injured arm from a mechanical accident rode a bicycle to the Emergency Room to receive treatment. After receiving treatment, I arranged transportation for the patient to return home, but we were worried about how the patient would obtain the medication prescribed. We called Case Management Director Laura Bass, who arranged to purchase one of the patient’s medications through the hospital's Crisis Fund, but she could not cover both. When Orthopedic Surgeon Bryan Dudoussat, MD, of North Oaks Orthopaedic Specialty Center learned of this, he graciously handed me the funds to cover the remaining medication. He never hesitated. He just asked me to make sure the patient had what was needed for discharge. This was truly heartwarming.”
