Bryson Mestayer, an RN in the ICU, admitted a terminally ill patient on life support whose family lived out of town.
The patient’s siblings were awaiting the last of their siblings from out of state to arrive before withdrawing life support from their loved one. The family present, inquired about the possibility of last rites through pastoral care. However, there was no one on-call that evening for LGMC.
Bryson took the caring initiative to call multiple churches in the area. He found a priest on-call to provide last rites for his patient. All the while, providing care to his other patients, and keeping this family comforted and supplied with coffee.
Bryson demonstrated the character we strive for in going above and beyond his duties to deliver compassionate care.
