Unfortunately, the patient passed away a few days later in the ICU, but ER staff and the patient’s family made it a point to bring to HSS’s attention the professional response and amount of effort Cunningham provided without pause. ER Director Stacie Miller observed that Cunningham’s effort was a key factor in keeping the patient alive long enough to receive the best treatment. Cunningham received HSS’s PRIDE Champion award for his quick and caring response.
