Dr. Ross Brown was recognized as a Service Hero at Hot Springs for displaying the value of EXCELLENCE.
Dr. Brown was nominated by a fellow physician after he responded to a code while visiting a family member in the hospital while he was off-duty.
“He helped support the patient’s airways until the on-duty ED physician could arrive. He stated he was just the closest doctor so felt he should go.”
Upon leaving the patient’s room, another patient became aggressive toward a nurse in the hallway.
“Dr. Brown stepped between them and intervened. He asked the patient to go back to his room and stop assaulting the nurses. The patient tried to fight and kick Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown handled the situation until security could arrive.”
