Medical professionals respond to the call of duty, even when they're off the clock and enjoying a daughter's band performance at a football game. That was the case for Art and Heather Bratcher. They were recently honored for rendering life-saving emergency medical care to a middle school football player with a severe head injury. Art is an instructor in the EMS Education program at Vol State. His wife Heather is director of Emergency Services at Tristar StoneCrest Medical Center. HCA recently highlighted their call to action and the long-term plan that Heather Bratcher spearheaded, to help if an emergency happens on the field in the future. Check out the HCA blog for the details.
