Congrats to SMS Standout Tyre Armstrong

By September 14, 2022No Comments

Let’s hear it for our SMS Standout Tyre Armstrong. Tyre treated a patient who presented chest pain, dizziness, and weakness. The EKG revealed atrial fibrillation with a rapid ventricular response. Tyre contacted med control who ordered medication to treat the arrhythmia, which had a positive effect on the patient’s conditions. The employee was safely transported to the ER for further evaluation. Great thinking and work, Tyre!

We were able to get a glimpse into what a day at work looks like for Tyre and learn some fun facts about him.
