The clock was ticking. He came into the clinic for a blood pressure medication refill. Our nurse practitioner gave him a physical assessment, first and asked if he experienced chest pain. He said, “Yes.” She reached out to the local hospital and referred him to a cardiologist who ran the applicable tests. The man underwent quadruple bypass heart surgery. Within a week, he resumed his normal work routine.
What do you say when someone says “Thank uou,” for helping to save his life? At Ag Worker Health & Services health clinics, our patients say it to us every day. We tell them it’s our job and we care about them. In Billings, Dillon, Lolo, Fairview Montana and in Powell, Wyoming, where we have clinic locations, our nurses reach out to hospitals and local providers to work together to provide desperately needed care to agricultural workers throughout Montana and Wyoming.
Anyone who does ag work should call us at 1-800-813-4492, to learn how we can work together to enrich their life.
