Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (April 2, 2014)---Botsford Hospital has named Respiratory Therapist Nicole Davis as a recipient of its Safety Award. Her quick thinking, professional response, and humanity almost certainly saved a woman's life. Botsford's Safety Award recognizes employees' contributions to the hospital's safety initiatives. Safety is a pillar on which Botsford has built its clinical care.
On one of the coldest days of this past winter, Davis, clocked out after her shift and left the hospital to retrieve her car from the employee parking lot. She encountered a confused woman, who asked for help and complained of being cold. She wore only a hoodie for a jacket. Davis began to help the woman, trying to coax her into the hospital. Then, the woman became upset, swearing and striking out---sure signs of hypothermia.
Davis used her mobile phone to call for assistance. Botsford Hospital's security officers, as well as a coworker of Davis, responded immediately with a wheelchair. Davis stayed with the woman to offer comfort until she was safely transported to Botsford's Emergency & Trauma Center.
