Registered Nursing staff at the California State Prison, Los Angeles County (LAC), were honored by executives for their swift life-saving actions.

What started as a normal day quickly turned deadly as a doctor began feeling chest pains. That’s when staff quickly responded, providing care to stabilize the physician until an emergency medical response team arrived.

Prison staff praised the efforts of Chief Nurse Executive Adam Rowley and Supervising Registered Nurse III Sarah Malogi’s nursing team.

LAC Warden RC Johnson provided certificates and challenge coins to the nursing staff for going above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to their quick response, the physician is recovering. The CEO also presented plaques.
