Tara thought outside the box for this patient.

Let me first say thank you, Tara, for picking up, and coming over to the adult side ER to work in Resus tonight! Secondly, I would like to recognize Tara for going above and beyond to put her patient and his wife, especially their comfort, above anything else.  Tara had a terminally ill cancer patient in Resus 1 tonight that found out in December he had cancer, but most recently it is now believed that it may have spread.  Tara not only placed the patient in a hospital bed (which is our practice), but she also pushed a stretcher next to the hospital bed so the patient's wife could lay next to him realizing that they may not have much time left together.  I just wanted to take the time to recognize Tara for her hard work, and how nice it was of her to think outside the box for this patient.  Thanks again!
