Getting Back into the Game
Brenton is a daredevil of a little boy who is always up for a challenge and McKee Medical Center’s staff is ready for him and boys just like him.
Brenton likes all of the activities that make boys’ hearts race and mothers’ minds worry: Football. Skateboarding. Snowboarding – all just second nature for a boy who proudly wears a shirt saying “I Do All My Own Stunts.’’ “We have a lot of scars all over us,’’ says his mother, Barbara. During his first year of football practice, Brenton, who would love to play for the Denver Broncos, collided helmet-to-helmet with another player.
Brenton was knocked down and fazed and the next day, he had a headache and felt lethargic. Worried, his mother decided he needed to be checked out. McKee was ready for him.
Because of McKee's streamlined Emergency department, it took only minutes for Breton to be seen by a triage nurse and doctor. The waiting room was comfortable and the staff friendly and understanding about the special needs of children. The nurse told him if there were going to be any needles, she would tell him about it first. There weren’t going to be any bad surprises. It turns out there were no bad surprises for his mother, either. Brenton's CAT scan came back negative and his mother is happy to talk about the efficient, friendly care her son received.
And Brenton is off on his next adventure. Boys will be boys.
