Off-duty trainee nursing associate saves man’s life after car crash

A trainee nursing associate at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has been praised for saving a man’s life after a car crash happened near her home. Jade Myatt, who works on the acute medical unit, was driving from her uncle’s home in Stirchley to her own house in Madeley, near Telford, when she came across the scene of the accident. Ms Myatt performed CPR on the man who she believed was having a heart attack, while she waited for an ambulance to arrive. The driver was subsequently taken to the trust’s Princess Royal Hospital where he was stabilised before being transferred to University Hospitals of North Midlands in Stoke. Ms Myatt is due to qualify as a nursing associate in January and said she planned to gain more experience before going on to study to become a registered nurse.
