Bell Ambulance, Inc
2020 Wisconsin Star of Life
Noelle Gross has been serving Bell Ambulance for four years. While this is not necessarily a lot of time, her impact on the company has been extraordinary. She started as a shy EMT-Basic, however by 2017 she had received her Paramedic certification, and dove head-first into her new role. She quickly became a knowledgeable and aggressive Paramedic. It didn’t take long for her to venture into Critical Care, and in 2018, she attended the UMBC Critical Care Program.
Noelle shows a true passion for EMS and now, as a field training officer, she is sharing everything she has learned. Noelle breathes a breath of fresh air into the company every day, bringing an energetic attitude and a fun disposition.
Just this past December, Noelle responded to a healthcare facility for a patient complaining of weakness and increased edema. When she arrived, she found the male patient very lethargic and unable to speak. During the assessment of the patient, she discovered that he was suffering from hypotension and a heartrate of only 34 bpm. Noelle and her partner swiftly placed pacer pads on the patient and set the heartrate at 70. With that, the patient became more alert, and his blood pressure stabilized. Noelle and her partner administered analgesics to help the patient tolerate the pacer, and they successfully delivered him to the ER. This is just one of many examples of her excellent care in the field.
Noelle lives with her boyfriend Josh in West Allis. Noelle is also a Paramedic with the Thiensville Fire Department and spends most of her days off playing doggy-mom to her Blue Tick Coonhound and her German Shepard. We are grateful to have Noelle as part of our team and are happy to nominate her as a 2020 Wisconsin Star of Life!
