Everyday Nurse Hero Makes Ultimate Sacrifice for Her Patients

 

DES PLAINES, Ill., November 27, 2013 – The Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) was deeply saddened to learn about the recent Texas surgical center workplace violence story in which a nurse was stabbed.

 

Our hearts go out to the family of Gail Sandidge, the nurse hero who died while protecting her patients, the injured and their families, all at Ambulatory Surgical Center of Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Texas, and our Texas ENA colleagues.

Gail Sandidge reacted as all nurses do – to protect the well-being of her patients – and in this case it was fatal.

 “Our prayers go out to all who have been touched by this tragic event and to all nurses, like Gail Sandidge, who are Everyday Heroes, saving lives each and every day,” said 2013 ENA President, and Texas native, JoAnn Lazarus, MSN, RN, CEN. “ENA will continue its important work to create safer healthcare environments for our nurses and patients.”

ENA works tirelessly to advocate for stricter workplace violence laws, and recently worked to change Texas legislation to increase protection for emergency department personnel.
