Naperville Fire Dept. earns Edward's "Run of the Quarter" award

August 31, 2017

Edward Hospital’s EMS (Emergency Medical Services) “Run of the Quarter” for April-June 2017 has been awarded to the Naperville Fire Department’s Station 10 and Truck 5. Fire Department personnel were recognized for the care they provided to a patient who had sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The patient was taken to Edward Hospital where he later passed away, but not before his family authorized a donation to the Gift Of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network.

“We commend the members of the Naperville Fire Department, Medic 10 and Truck 5, for your collaborative effort along with the Naperville Police Department,” says Bill Kottmann, President & CEO, Edward Hospital. “We are proud to partner with such skilled and compassionate men and women who serve our community. Your excellent work in the field and dedication to patient care is greatly appreciated.”

In the “Run of the Quarter” program, the Edward EMS Team reviews ambulance runs by pre-hospital providers and selects one to be recognized every three months based on the following criteria:

  • Excellent communication from the field that resulted in the timely delivery of pertinent clinical information to the Edward Emergency Department staff
  • Clear and thorough documentation
  • Superior clinical assessment skills that resulted in accurate recognition of a clinical situation
  • Behavior exceeding the call of duty in the field
  • Superior partnership and teamwork with Edward Hospital
