Teamwork helps us change lives
Today we recognize our lab, emergency, and surgery departments for shared efforts that saved a life and truly demonstrated our commitment to exceptional care.
Recently, a gentleman arrived at Bronson Battle Creek (BBC) Emergency Department with serious abdominal pain. The pain progressed and he suffered a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). This is a truly life-threatening emergency with virtually no chance of survival unless it occurs in a hospital setting.
Without going into great detail, the exceptional skills of our emergency team; the rapid, high quality response by our lab; and the skilled intervention of our surgery team all combined to save a life.
Thanks to BBC surgery, ED, and lab for the great work you do every day. And I would add that this can only happen with the efforts of so many others across multiple departments whose teamwork helps us change lives.
