Another Wonderful Story

I just learned of another wonderful act of caring and kindness demonstrated by one of our employees.  The other evening one of our employees, Sherry Thompson, RN, was leaving to head home after another long day in Same Day Surgery.  As Sherry was getting on the elevator, she saw a woman hitting her head against the elevator door, screaming and almost completely out of control.  Sherry asked if she could help.  The woman's fianc√© who was in his forties was being brought to the ED in full cardiac arrest and she was trying to find the ED.  Not only did Sherry bring her to the ED, but she stayed with her for three hours giving her comfort, encouragement and prayer since no other family were available.
We truly have extremely special people at WMHS.  Sherry, thanks for living our Core Values each day.
