At HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital, we are very proud of our colleagues and the manner in which they demonstrate compassion to our patients, their families and each other. We like to periodically highlight the stories of our exceptional colleagues who have been named an I Promise winner over the past year, such as Donnie Payne. Donnie was nominated for an I Promise award for assiting with a situation in ER. In her nomination of Donnie for the award, Kristen Kyle, Emergency technician, shared, Last week, we had a bad accident victim coming in; we were informed they were just going to do a scene flight. For reasons unknown, they changed their mind and decided to meet the ambulance outside ER. We had no advanced notice; [the helicopter]called in and said they were one minute out. Not having enough time to get security outside, Donnie was nice enough to go block traffic for me as the helicopter landed. I didnt even have to ask him; he just followed me out there, excited to help. Thanks for going above and beyond, Donnie!
