Round Rock resident Karen Henderson fell victim to a heart attack while driving her car. Thanks to the quick response of Williamson County EMS and St. David's Round Rock Medical Center emergency room doctors and nurses, Karen was able to leave the hospital just two weeks later with normal brain and heart function.
Karen was my patient.
This was an ad that ran in our community paper last week. I was totally asleep when Brian woke me up to see it. Wasn't this your patient?!? Yes, that was my patient that crazy day we were slammed, we had brand new computer charting and I was working a random day shift. That patient that day was one of those times as a nurse when you do your best because it is what you do, not knowing if that patient will ever make it. It was surreal. This makes every 12 hour shift, every night where we were slammed with ambulances, and every time I had to change my scrubs because some bodily fluid got on mine worth it. Karen, you made my year. Thanks.
