How They're Living Our Mission: Service to the Poor and Vulnerable
Debbie Burkhardt, Nurse Manager for Trauma Services at Madisonville Hospital, always goes above and beyond for her patients. When one of her patients was concerned about going home due to his living conditions, Debbie stepped up. To prevent the wound on the patients foot from becoming infected, she worked with our Resource Center to contact a team to go in and clean his home (with the patient’s permission). When Debbie found out the patient had no running water due to a broken pipe, she contacted a plumber to repair the issue. She has a giving heart, and this is not the first example of her helping a patient in need. We are very proud to have her as part of our team!
