Mumbai Nurse becomes ‘Metro Hero’ for helping the patient in need

13th June 2018, Mumbai: Priyanka, after a hard day at work, was waiting to board a metro from Mumbai’s Chakala metro station at 7.30PM when she heard an announcement. The announcement requested any medical professional at the station to visit the customer care officer to help with a medical emergency. Forgetting the day’s tiredness, Priyanka- a clinical instructor and nursing educator at HealthCare atHOME (HCAH) – rushed to the First Aid Room to see an elderly man lying unconscious. Remembering the training she has received at HealthCare atHOME (HCAH), Priyanka immediately took charge and administered CPR to the 76 year old Bidyanath Thakur (name changed) for 20 minutes till the ambulance arrived. Along with a few staff members of Chakala metro station, Priyanka travelled with the patient in the ambulance to the hospital and helped with admission paperwork and briefing doctors. Unfortunately, Thakur could not survive the sudden cardiac arrest. But Priyanka set an inspiring example by taking her profession beyond the boundaries of office space and time.
