Nurses are trained to stay calm and administer first aid in emergency situations. So when a registered nurse discovered a woman had passed out in an aisle at a local Walmart in Georgia, she didn’t hesitate to stop what she was doing and help the stranger.
“My husband and I stopped at Walmart in Evans to pick up a couple of things. As we were walking to the refrigerated section, we noticed a woman who had passed out and fallen on the floor. Being a registered nurse, my first instinct was of course to stop, assess, and be there to help,” expecting mom and nurse Brittany McKee said.
“She had regained orientation, but did say she was on blood thinners and felt dizzy. So I stayed with her, along with her daughter and the Walmart personnel, until the ambulance came and tried to encourage her to stay seated,” she said. McKee had stayed calm throughout the entire ordeal but was beside herself when she saw what one staff member was doing for the woman.
“The Walmart staff was amazing. They kept in contact with dispatch as we waited on the bus to arrive. Then there was Jason. I don’t know his last name, but this man, no questions asked got down on the floor with this woman and supported her back so she could lean against him. He literally got down on the floor to serve her, not because he was asked to do it, he wasn’t, but because he wanted to.”
“The media lately shows our country divided, filled with hate and racial tension, but this right here was one human being loving and serving another without condition of race or obligation. While we waited, another man stopped, knelt down and prayed over this woman. What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving.”
