Excerpts from the Chicagotribune.com:

Edward Hospital’s EMS “Run of the Quarter” for January-March 2018 has been awarded to the Warrenville Fire Protection District, Medic 12, Red Shift, for their care in March of a 12-year-old girl who nearly drowned after apparently suffering a seizure while in a pool.

When paramedics arrived, the girl was awake and said the last thing she remembered was being pulled out of the pool. She was transported to the Edward Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department where she did well and later transferred to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital for further treatment.

The Edward EMS Team reviews ambulance runs by pre-hospital providers and selects one to be recognized every three months based on the following criteria:

–Excellent communication from the field that resulted in the timely delivery of pertinent clinical information to the Edward Emergency Department staff
–Clear and thorough documentation
–Superior clinical assessment skills that resulted in accurate recognition of a clinical situation
–Behavior exceeding the call of duty in the field
–Superior partnership and teamwork with Edward Hospital
