Damon Cudihy, M.D. - OB/GYN
When OB/GYN Dr. Damon Cudihy grew concerned over one of his patients, it was about more than just their medical condition, so he decided to do something about it. This patient was showing signs that their personal welfare and safety might be in jeopardy. Dr. Cudihy first contacted police to get them involved in protecting the patient. He also put state agencies onto the case in order to ensure a safe hospitalization and discharge for the patient.
Providing this secure and stable environment may have helped change the course of this patient’s life. Dr. Cudihy refused to look the other way or let this be another example of a person falling through the cracks of the system. His willingness to act and persevere proved he is a patient advocate in the biggest way.
