Recognizing Our Own
We’d like to take a moment to recognize the extraordinary actions of two of our amazing therapists today!
Morgan Leeds, MOT, OTR/L, and Melissa Rich, MPT, were working with a patient on the Medical Telemetry Unit. During their session, they noticed changes in her speech and gait. Without hesitation, they called for help and were able to safely get the patient back to her bed.
A rapid response was called that turned into a Stroke Alert. Morgan and Melissa stayed at the bedside to help answer questions and to comfort the patient who was visibly frightened.
Due to Melissa and Morgan’s astute assessment skills and quick intervention, the patient was able to get to Interventional Radiology and have the clot removed thereby saving precious brain time.
Great job Team!
