Thanks to the dedication of two of Shore Health System’s own staff, a hospice patient was given a very special final wish. Terry Detrich, MD, neurologist and medical director of the Primary Stroke Center at Memorial Hospital at Easton and Sue McLaughlin, executive assistant to the Chief Medical Officer and medical staff at Shore Health, were recently recognized as Everyday Heroes.
A hospice patient shared with his chaplain a story about a memorable meal he missed – one that involved hunting and eating game birds. Detrich and McLaughlin stepped in to help, locating the wild duck and preparing a meal complete with all the trimmings.
