Remarkable Stories

Brandi Quirk, RN, EMMC Family Medicine in Hampden, came across an elderly patient who was suffering from significant back pain. The patient’s family desperately wanted her to seek medical help from the providers in Hampden, so the patient’s daughter made an appointment. When they got to the practice, however, the patient refused to get out of the car.

Seeing the trouble the daughter was having, Brandi went to speak to the patient to see how she could help. Brandi offered to bring the care to the patient, and as the elderly woman remained in the car, Brandi began the visit, taking the woman’s blood pressure, reviewing her medical history, and coordinating her care. It was greatly appreciated by the family, who was struggling to care for their mother. She thought outside the box to get this patient the care she needed. Read more stories here.
