Cody Hughes and Jonathan Veach, who work for Metro EMS, were recognized as Service Heroes for displaying the value of EXCELLENCE.
On a recent evening, Cody and Jonathan were completing a transport of a patient to our Emergency Room. In passing through, they noticed a patient sitting in the ER waiting room who did not look right to them.
Rather than continuing back to their ambulance and going about their business, they went over to the patient, finding him unresponsive. They called for help and initiated resuscitation procedures.
“Because of their awareness, dedication and fast action, this patient survived and recovered. They had no responsibility to stop or to even pay any attention to anyone in the waiting room, but they did it anyway and saved a man’s life.”
Cody and Jonathan demonstrated our core values of Compassion, Integrity and Excellence and set a fine example for all of us to follow.
