Morrilton’s Emergency Department team members were named Service Heroes for displaying the value of COMPASSION.
A homeless man came into the ED, looking for help. He was very dirty, and his clothes were soiled.
The ED team immediately stepped in. Becki Ellis and Sarah Gaines gave him a shower. Jackie Loyd and Hope Hartman purchased insulated undergarments, a toboggan and a Carhartt coat.
The team also gathered clothing and shoes from the patient compassion closet. His bag of soiled clothing was too much for him to carry, so Shawna Andrews took the man’s clothing to him at his tent outside of town.
This team truly exemplified the core values that we live by each and every day: reverence, compassion, excellence and integrity.
