BELPRE — The Memorial Health System Belpre Medical Campus Emergency Department has received the Golden Hour Award from the OhioHealth Trauma Network.
In the event of a traumatic injury, the first 60 minutes after, referred to as the “golden hour,” are the most crucial. Care administered within the golden hour often determines a patient’s prognosis, so it is important healthcare teams swiftly act to ensure the best possible outcome.
Presented to a referring facility each year at the annual OhioHealth Trauma Care Conference, the Golden Hour Award recognizes outstanding patient care in the area of trauma. Recipients of the award are nominated based on trauma cases recently handled by that department. For the Belpre ED, this trauma involved a patient with a serious neck injury after an encounter with a dog.
The recognition by OhioHealth Trauma Network shows the Emergency Department in Belpre provided exceptional care when faced with a devastating injury. Quick actions resulted in the saving of a patient’s life and the Golden Hour Award measures the caliber of care the Belpre team demonstrated on that day, the health system said.
“It is an honor to receive the Golden Hour Award,” Brittany Cunningham, clinical nurse manager at Memorial Health System, said. “This award shows the great work that this department does every single day. Every member of our team consistently works together to provide exceptional care to our patients. In critical situations such as this one, each team member has a role to execute, and on this day, they did just that. I personally could not ask for a better team.”
Memorial Health System is a not-for-profit regional health system led by a volunteer board of residents from the community.
