Christy Daae

Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth

A health care hero is someone who not only uses her skills, dedication, compassion and quick thinking to make a difference for patients but also takes those qualities outside her job to assure the best possible outcome for others.

In August 2012, Christy Daae, an emergency nurse at Texas Health Fort Worth for 14 years, was  at a neighborhood swimming pool with her two children when she spotted a 3-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy in trouble. The boy had jumped in the pool to help the girl after she fell into the deep end. Daae jumped into action, performing CPR on the boy with the help of another off-duty clinician who happened to be there. Once paramedics and firefighters arrived, she helped start an IV and give oxygen to the girl.
Her quick response and willingness to get involved made all the difference for the girl. She did all she could for the little boy, reviving him so he could get to the hospital where his family could be with him. He later died but his organ donation saved six lives.
In recognition of her heroic actions, Daae was named a Hometown Hero by the U.S. Air Force and flew with the Thunderbirds at the Alliance Air Show with a photo of the boy.
