Sheriff Al Nienhuis is pleased to report that the Care Line Program saved another life today.
Earlier today, when the 101-year-old Care Line client did not call in at her designated time, the Care Line clerks attempted to call her. The client did not answer.
After meeting with negative results when attempting to contact friends and neighbors (listed as emergency contacts), Care Line clerks requested a unit be dispatched to conduct a Well-Being Check on the client.
Upon arrival, it was determined that the client had suffered a medical episode and was “down” on the floor inside the residence. Units on scene requested Fire Rescue be dispatched.
Fire Rescue treated the client on scene then transported her to a local hospital.
It should be noted that the client will turn 102 years old in just a few weeks.
“Every single day of the year, the employees assigned to our Care Line give peace of mind to the families of our registered Care Line users. This is just another shining example, among many a year, of how that dedication can avert a tragedy, said Sheriff Al Nienhuis.”
We would like to thank our Care Line clerks Linda Muczynski and Allison Phillips for their care and diligence in providing services to not only this client but to all Care Line clients every day!
