The Holidays

Yesterday was the monthly department director's meeting at WMHS.  It is always held on the first Thursday of the month.   It was a little difficult to get into the holiday spirit this early in December, but we figured out a way.  At every meeting, we spend time on recognition of departments and individuals.  We were quickly put in the holiday spirit as one of our employees was recognized for her role during the recent Santa parade at the Country Club Mall.  During the parade, one of the participants went  into cardiac arrest.  The daughter of one of our nurses was attending the parade and knowing that her mother was shopping at the Mall, called her.  Our nurse rushed to the scene and began CPR.  Another employee knew where the AED was located and our nurse shocked the man back to life.  What a great way to start off the holiday season.
