Client Testimonials

I can't thank the library research staff enough. Two days ago I had a patient come to the ICU with an amniotic fluid embolism and DIC. Depending on where you look this condition has around a 96% chance of death. It's rare enough that the latest treatment protocols are all in journal articles that we didn't have instant access to at our facility. Around an hour after the patient presented, I called the MCHS Library to request a treatment review article published earlier this year. Within 5 minutes I had a copy of the article in my email. We altered our course of treatment per the articles recommendations. Today the patient is sitting up in bed, eating breakfast with no neurologic side effects. This may not have been possible without the quick action from the MCHS Library staff. Thank You SOOO Much!
