Our Spine team member saved a life this month!
What happens when someone starts choking in a restaurant?
Earlier this month, Liz, one of our experienced medical staff, was in a restaurant when a woman began to choke on some food. The woman’s husband tried to give her the Heimlich maneuver but was unsuccessful. Luckily, Liz was there and was able to step in and perform the Heimlich maneuver successfully. The piece of food was completely dislodged allowing the woman to get much needed oxygen to her lungs and brain. Liz saved her life!
Great job Liz! We are so proud of you!!!
Liz has over 10 years of experience in the medical field. She has an excellent reputation when it comes to patient care which is no surprise because Liz is so passionate about helping people while always being very open and honest with our patients. We also find that our patients really connect with Liz because, like many of our patients, she has suffered from chronic back pain throughout her life and can really understand and relate to what our patients are going through.
Outside of work, Liz is an avid reader and enjoys various outdoor activities, especially camping and hiking. She is also a proud mom and loves to make costumes for her son’s theater group. We are so lucky to have her as part of the SPINE Family!
