I wanted to let you know about an Extraordinary Nurse, Randi Stamp. She always puts the needs of others before herself, but on Saturday she exceeded any expectations! She was going through the lobby, and saw a young man, sitting on a bench, bleeding profusely. She immediately recognized the bleeding as arterial and called for someone to get a stop the bleed kit. He stated that he had been stabbed, and then rode his bicycle to the hospital. He had already lost a great deal of blood. With the assistance of a security officer, she was able to apply tourniquets and pressure to his arm and his leg wounds to minimize his bleeding. Express care arrived and took the patient to the TRU. While we are grateful every day to have nurses like Randi within our 4 walls, this young man is likely more thankful that she was here and wanted to buy a cookie!
