The following is a patient care experience that exemplifies why this team deserves this outstanding award and recognition:  

“A rapid response and EMS transport of a patient was performed in a fast and efficient manner. Using strong nursing judgement and clinical knowledge, the team was able to assess and respond appropriately to a negative patient condition producing a positive outcome for the patient. The calm, yet swift management by this team of a patient whose health status was rapidly declining was a true inspiration. The nurses were able to work as a team to manage this patient's care, and safely and swiftly transfer the patient to a higher level of care.” -Chatchawin Assanasen, MD
