Peggy McIntire, Week of January 24, 2011
Peggy McIntire, an employee in the Department of Senior Affairs, is being honored for going above and beyond her job duties. McIntire saved the life of a client in the Department of Senior Affairs.
On October 25, 2010 Ms. McIntire received a telephone call from a health care provider regarding a senior client who may be in distress. Peggy solicited the assistance of a co-worker and they coordinated with the Albuquerque Police Department to do a welfare check on the client. Upon their arrival, they observed the female client laying on the ground in the back yard. The client was unable to get up, or call 911 for herself.
Through Peggy's quck thinking and rationale efforts, the senior in distress was able to get the help she needed.
