Peggy's persistence in knowing that there was something wrong with a patient helped save her life.

Peggy Brenner’s persistence in knowing that there was something wrong with a patient helped save her life.  The patient has a very low platelet count, <20, and complained of a severe headache.  After multiple calls to the attending physician with no results, she reached out to me for orders as a consulting Nurse Practitioner for the patient.  A STAT CT of the brain was ordered and revealed an acute or chronic subdural hematoma.

Peggy’s concern for her patient saved this patient.  She should be commended for her advocacy.
