Lifesaving Awards Presented: Randolph County, MO

MAY 2019 – Jail staff members Walker, Tucker, Kressig, and Ewens were presented with a patient in full cardiac arrest. While we cannot tell you exactly what happened next due to federal patient privacy and confidentiality laws, we can tell you that this team did not freeze.
Jail staff assisted the medical responders in resuscitating the patient and remained with the patient until EMS could arrive. Jail staff members Walker, Tucker, Kressig, and Ewens saved the patient’s life.
Saving a life is a team effort. To celebrate their actions and recognize all individuals involved, Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc.
