Stafford Deputy Helps Hospital Patient

When a man traveling from out-of-state had a medical emergency at a local hotel that landed him in the hospital last week, a nurse at Stafford Hospital became concerned when she realized the patient had left critical medication at his hotel. The hospital did not carry the medication and she had no way to quickly retrieve it.

As a last resort, the nurse contacted the Sheriff’s Office in hopes a deputy could pick up the medication and bring it to the hospital. She was pleasantly surprised and grateful when the 9-1-1 dispatcher let her know a deputy was on his way. After hearing the request, Deputy Lytle immediately sprang into action and quickly collected the patient’s personal belongings, including the medication, from the hotel. He then brought the items to the hospital.

Without Deputy Lytle, the patient would have been unable to get his medication and other belongings in a timely manner. Here at the SCSO, we are proud of Deputy Lytle for exemplifying the core values of our department—professionalism, integrity, fairness, and, especially, compassion.

To some, this act of kindness was going above and beyond the call of duty. But, if you ask Deputy Lytle, this is what being a SCSO deputy is all about—serving the community.
