Great teamwork and trust literally saved a life

Jim McKernan, Bronson Employee

Today we recognize Janet Young, RN and Dr. Paul Lin from the Emergency Department (ED) for paying attention to detail, building trusting partnerships, and delivering exceptional care experiences.

Recently, Jan Young had completed a critical patient transport to Bronson Methodist Hospital and was travelling with the Lifecare Ambulance team back to Bronson Battle Creek (BBC).  The ambulance responded to an emergency call and Jan with the EMS crew recognized the signs of a life-threatening condition that required immediate surgery.  Upon arrival at BBC, Jan shared her observations with Dr. Paul Lin who immediately evaluated the patient and contacted surgery.  The diagnosis was rapidly confirmed, the surgery team quickly assembled, and the patient received a lifesaving procedure.  Great teamwork and trust literally saved a life.

Our thanks to the talent, trust and teamwork of RN Janet Young,  Dr. Paul Lin, and to our partners at Lifecare Ambulance.  And our appreciation to all at Bronson who work as a team to assure the highest quality healthcare is delivered in our community.
