JGH CCU Nurse was definitely in the right place at the right time!
Registered Nurse, Sarah Green Gandee, was instrumental in saving a 6 year old girl's life last week at the Ravenswood Pool. Along with lifeguard, Damian Morriston, who pulled the child from the 5 foot end of the pool unconscious and blue, measures were quickly taken to revive her. Sarah performed CPR and drained the water from the little girl's lungs for several minutes before she began to respond. Sarah's quick call to action, 13+ years of experience as a nurse, and additional training in PALS (pediatric advanced life support), gave her the skills necessary to save a life off duty as she often does on the job. We're so proud to have quality healthcare providers who are an essential part of our community!
