Off-duty nurse saves dying man's life
An Indianapolis emergency department nurse recently found himself in the right place at the right time and helped saved a man's life.
Corey Pereira is a nurse and works in the emergency department at Community Hospital Ease. He says he likes the challenge of never knowing what's coming. One minute you could just be kind of hanging out and, you know, helping out other coworkers do things, and the next minute you're running through an emergency coming through the front door or E. M. S is bringing somebody in, so it's kind of exhilarating at times during a recent night out at a bar in Brownsburg with his brother, Corey certainly wasn't prepared for what was coming. Just met my brother out for a night of drinks and, um, just happened. This guy, like, walked by us, and, uh, he kind of had this look on his face, but we didn't really think anything much of it just because, you know, we're in a bar and that's kind of expected. Everybody's, they're having a good time. But, you know, he took 10 15 steps to the left of us, and then he just collapsed. Corey noticed the man was not blinking or breathing and jumped in. I've seen this before, and that's when I just kind of clicked in the nurse mode and check the polls and check respirations. And, you know, unfortunately, had none. And I just started unfolding them, you know? So the perfect CPR position started CPR on him. And then, as I got him back, so he basically had died. Yes, ma'am is no pulse, no respirations, just for God. Because of his quick action in training, he was able to revive the man justice police and paramedics arrived. Corey's pretty humble. The hospital probably would never have even known about his life saving event if it hadn't been from an officer who was also a the bar and witnessed what he had done writing. Mr. Perea should be commended for his quick actions. With today's climate and concern over the cove it pandemic, it was reassuring to see Mr Period not hesitate and quickly reverted to his training.
