Hospital staff are going out of their way to help an overwhelming amount of patients during a huge snow storm. Storm Emma is a snow storm taking over the UK.
This unusual storm has caused many people to have to go to the hospital. When the worst of this storm hit, many staff members of Royal Derby Hospital as well as other NHS hospital staff stayed overnight at the hospital, ensuring they were on hand to support patients throughout the duration of the crazy weather conditions.
The hospital originally offered its staff accommodation if they were worried about getting to and from work in the storm. They also organized a service to pick up any staff who were stuck in the snow.
What originally started as a help for the staff, turned into an opportunity for staff to do an immensely selfless act. A lot of the staff began sleeping at the hospital, even if they were able to get home.
They wanted to stay there to ensure the increasing number of patients were in good care.
