We loved being able to talk with the Life Flight crew that flew in, just for us, and learn more about the amazing things they do for the community and just how important their jobs are. Something I thought was so cool was when they were talking about going on calls. One of the Flight Nurses said their rule is "three to go and one to stay." What that means is that if one of the crew members doesn't have a good feeling about going on the call they don't go. They each go with their gut instincts. As a mother who truly believes in mothers intuition and going off of gut instincts I thought that was very cool.
My first thought…way too much red for this avid BYU fan. However, once I got over that thought and started looking around I noticed what a beautiful facility they have. Very up-to-date and clean, a comfortable place for any medical emergency. Yes I just used the words ‘comfortable’ and ‘emergency’ in the same sentence. But isn't that what you would want if you were dealing with any type of trauma? Throughout the evening we learned about their main concern, providing positive and helpful health and wellness information for their patients, and the community. Their website that they are recommending to all patients and prospective patients is:
Attending the UUHC Blogger night was an awesome experience and I met some pretty incredible people. The host, Lizzy, was very friendly and wanted us to feel comfortable so she had food and freebies for us. Wahoo! Thank you, Libby. As a medical facility they want to do more than just treat patients and diseases, they want to educate and connect with more people through a different aspect of social media, which is our blog. Our blog reaches several types of people who have different medical questions and need answers from a trusted source. What better way to connect the two than by meeting each others needs for all to benefit.
I am looking forward to working with UUHC's medical professionals and providing our blog readers with answers and educating them on the important issues in their lives. So bring on your questions!!! No holds barred!
Meeting the Life Flight staff and seeing the helicopter up front and personal was an amazing experience. They are genuinely passionate about what they do and the people they serve. I can honestly say this about all the staff that was at the event.
Thank you for your generosity UUHC!
