People were yelling things to chart and asking for recall of events and she was able to provide a timeline for our trauma team.

I wanted to reach out to you about the Maryville nursing student (Emily Eckert) who was in the trauma on Saturday. There was a GSW through the front of the ER, very unexpected. Your student was in the room charting. As you know any trauma is a stressful situation, with added stress on the person charting. She jumped right in and charted everything as well as any experienced nurse. I, along with every other staff member in the room, were so very impressed with her professionalism. This was a horrific and emotional situation that she was thrown into and yet she reacted well and had amazing composure throughout the entire code. People were yelling things to chart and asking for recall of events and she was able to provide a timeline for our trauma team. I wanted to pass this along in hopes that she knows how vital her role was that day and we all appreciate her efforts. In the end it was not a good turn-out but her teamwork made it possible for another person to be at the bedside assisting and we are so grateful for that.
Thank you for helping to teach her!!
