Alma Bajagilovic Above Beyond Because


Alma Bajagilovic



Nobody ever expects to have a heart attack… especially while driving. Nurse Alma Bajagilovic went above and beyond for one long haul trucker that was brought to the hospital after having a heart attack in his truck. He was told he needed open heart surgery but was genuinely more concerned about the location of his truck than his own health. He simply could not rest until he knew where his truck was, so Alma and other nurses sprang into action. They worked with the Florida Highway patrol to locate the truck and one employee spent her day off collecting all the man’s belongings. She brought them to the hospital so he could rest easy and prepare for surgery. Alma may not be an actual saint, but to one trucker, she came pretty close.
