Injured woman uses sosPlus® after falling down stairs.

Fireworks, barbecues, and baseball, are the sights, smells, and sounds of 4th of July celebrations. On this day, we commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Congress of 1776.

On July 4th, 2013 at 3am, Colette woke up to use the restroom. Realizing that she hadn’t taken her medication, she proceeded to the kitchen. As she approached the kitchen, her slipper caught the stair and she fell down the flight of stairs, landing on her wrists. Tragically, she broke her wrists, injured her hip, and hurt her knee. In her own words Colette recalled the situation: “Every time I tried to move, it hurt. I finally rolled on my side, grabbed my Snapfon ezTWO, and pressed the SOS button with sosPlus ® Mobile Monitoring Service .” sosPlus ® Mobile Monitoring Service team member Jason responded to Colette’s cry for help and sent the paramedics to her home.

“The young man (whom she referred to as “Johnny on the spot”) kept me calm and assured me that help was coming,” Colette told sosPlus As the paramedics arrived, they found Colette on the floor not moving.
sosPlus® Mobile Monitoring Service was later told that without the information the paramedics received from SosPlus team member Jason, they might have thought she was unconscious and attempt to move her, possibly injuring her further.

sosPlus® Mobile Monitoring Service was happy to learn that Colette, after a few weeks of rehab, is back in her home.

We thank sosPlus® Mobile Monitoring Service team member Jason for his caring and dedicated service on Colette’s behalf, giving her the calming reassurance that with the Snapfon ezTWO and sosPlus ® Mobile Monitoring Service , help is always a button push away.
