Staff Nurse (SN) Steve Mocsoy had just finished his shift on 22nd May, Monday evening and was on his way home when he noticed a car had hit the railings along the road and a lady was trying to revive the driver. He knew the man required medical assistance and quickly called the hospital to activate Code Pink. He called back to Farrer Park Hospital and activated Code Pink. (A message announced over a hospital’s public address system warning the staff). In just five minutes, the emergency staff were at the scene of the accident, treating the stroke victim. The man was pale and his breathing was unsteady, but there were no signs of trauma or bleeding.
