Emergency Care Saved Her Life
Katie Brewington credits the Providence Seaside Emergency Department with saving her life. “I’m deeply grateful,” she said. “They provided me with the best care I have ever experienced.”
Katie and her husband Adam Ellis were visiting Seaside for a volleyball tournament when Katie woke up nauseous, in pain and going in and out of consciousness. After a quick ambulance ride to the hospital’s new emergency facility, she was diagnosed with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in her fallopian tube and heavy internal bleeding.
“The ER team immediately kicked into gear to save my life,” she said. Adam added, “It was like watching a NASCAR pit crew working seamlessly together.”
The Emergency Department team provided calm and encouraging care to prepare Katie for surgery. “My nurse, Stacie, knew exactly what to do,” she said. “When I told her I was scared, she put her hand on my shoulder and told me what was going to happen next. They let my husband stand next to me and hold my hand while they worked.”Read More
