Lifesaving Act Honored at Botsford Hospital's On-Site Child Care Center

Farmington Hills, Mich. (July 13, 2012)---Livonia resident Lisa Bame, a lead teacher at Botsford Hospital's child daycare facility, has been selected as a recipient of the Farmington Hills health care organization's Safety Award, which recognizes employees' contributions to the hospital's safety initiatives. Safety is a pillar on which Botsford has built its clinical care. 
 
During a lunch period, Bame observed a two-year-old toddler in distress and provided immediate assistance. She determined food was obstructing the airway, placing the toddler in immediate danger. Bame successfully performed obstructed airway clearance maneuvers. She then comforted the child and reassured the other children. Her rapid and skilled response to the emergency saved the child's life and resolved the incident without harm.
