May Person of the Moment: Katie Hegarty, Social Worker
Help us to recognize the May 2023 Person of the Moment, Katie Hegarty! Katie is a night shift Social Worker in the Stormont Vail Health Emergency Department who went the extra mile to provide expert care.
“Katie was made aware of a caller through Health Connections who was reaching out for support due to an intimate partner violence situation. Katie spoke with the patient and determined they needed to contact law enforcement to help ensure the patient’s safety. Katie requested a welfare check and officers were able to assist the patient in getting to a safe place. The patient later called Katie to also confirm that they were in a safe place and Katie ensured the patient was aware of community resources.”
This recognition is well deserved and we could not be prouder to have a team member like Katie Hegarty to represent the Stormont Vail tenet, “Together we own patient safety and the patient experience. We provide safe, high-quality care with a kind and generous spirit.”
