Hazel Stanton, a registered nurse with the Medic 93 paramedic unit based out of Brandywine Hospital, brings compassion to her EMS calls, writes Gil Cohen for the Daily Local News.
“I tell every patient that they matter and treat them in the same way I want to be treated,” said Stanton.
Stanton became a Medic 93 member while working in the intensive care unit at Brandywine Hospital. One day, the management team approached her about joining Medic 93.
“I did not know what a paramedic did,” she recalled. “I was petrified.”
However, after thinking about it, she accepted the offer. The decision was the right one, as Stanton enjoys working with her Medic 93 family. Since then, she has seen a lot of action. Medic 93 responds to more than 5,500 emergencies each year, with 25 percent of those for pediatrics.
“I get particular satisfaction in making children well again,” she said.
