I would like to share with our fellow members what happened today Shabbos.
There was a woman who had just given birth a week ago, she wasn’t feeling well for a few days and had a very high fever. Hatzolah took her to jersey shore hospital right before Shabbos, her baby was at la isha, she was released in middle of the night, came back 5 am by taxi.
The hospital gave her a prescription for antibiotics, she was still in extreme pain and had a high fever. It was very important to get the medicine, (she had a bad infection but was not enough of emergency for her to break the Shabbos), so the non-Jewish nursery staff called a number Hatzolah had given to us in the past if we needed any non-emergency assistance on Shabbos.
Literally four minutes later, a woman comes with a note pad and all her gear, and started asking her all the info and getting the paperwork. Not even 10 minutes has passed and she is back from the pharmacy with the medicine and receipts.
After talking to her, I find out her son is on LCSW and does the same thing as her on Shabbos for our community. His name is Steve Fugman, LCSW 91.
I am sharing because I am still in shock, how quick and professional everything was handled. She did it in such a modest way, how she knew exactly what to ask and get, was so respectful and nice. Such a caring heart.
I am still in shock, extremely amazed.
