It was busy in there too tonight. A nurse was going around with a heart rate monitor checking on patients in the waiting room.
I said hello to the screener and told her I had coffee cards for her department. I said I'd normally ask for the charge nurse but looking around the waiting room I said I'm guessing they're pretty busy. She nodded - when isn't it busy lately?
She offered to take them from me, I explained how the cards came to be and she thanked me about four times. They'd been nominated by Donna S., and I left her with Donna's message: "The staff at the Sturgeon ER including EMS is tired & overworked. Everyday they battle through the increased patient load and amped up safety procedures, in full PPE. Despite this they continue to go above & beyond, taking the time to reassure patients & family members and providing quick responses to emergencies. We experienced this first hand due to a recent 911 call that resulted in an ambulance trip and visit to the ER. Thank God the response was still fast & efficient. The paramedics were so reassuring. Love them!"
The #CoffeeforHCWsAB total is maintained at $5634.00 from 165 donors. I have 10 depts worth of coffee left with 750 cards ($3750) delivered to 25 departments
