“Kyle remained calm, professional and caring while trying to gather as much information as possible to help alleviate the situation. He went out of his way to try and get the patient admitted to hospital sooner to reduce the distress for the family.”

His second nomination is for consistently going above and beyond with his patient care.

WOW! Award Winner - Emma Cutler

Emma was nominated for her amazing care and patience with a very nervous and ill patient who didn't want to go to intensive care.

“She had refused to speak to anyone, but Emma sat with her for over an hour and managed to persuade her to go. She showered her, got her ready for ICU and took her there herself.

"This patience probably saved her life.”
