Dustin Grier was recognized as a Service Hero at the Infirmary for displaying the value of COMPASSION.
Dustin was nominated after he used his body to shield a Behavioral Health patient who was being attacked by three peers.
Dustin protected the patient, even though the attack was provoked by the patient using racial slurs and profane epithets toward the three peers. The patient sustained no injury; however, Dustin received two black eyes, a laceration on his forehead and as he laughingly said “a gigantic headache.”
Dustin valiantly sacrificed his personal well-being for the safety of his patient.
