As a highly active 22-year-old nursing student, Herbert’s heart sank when he suffered an ankle injury from a fall while he was indoor rock climbing. Unable to put any weight on his foot, Herbert’s mom brought him into the Misericordia Emergency Department to receive treatment.
"I think it’s so important to help in any way you can,” says Herbert. “I saw firsthand how well the Misericordia staff treated me and other patients when we needed it most. I can only imagine how helpful it will be for both Misericordia staff and patients to have a modern, purpose-built Emergency Department in the community.”
The entire time Herbert was in the Emergency, he says the staff treated him as a whole person rather than just an injured ankle. While he sat in the waiting room, he witnessed how patiently and informatively the Misericordia healthcare staff interacted with each patient. He was inspired by what he experienced and hopes he can provide the same level of holistic care once he finishes his nursing degree.
Thanks in part to the exceptional care he received, Herbert ran his first ever marathon in August, just seven months after his ankle injury.
