Miracles In Motion: Dr. Jolley

Dr. Christopher Jolley, a UF Health pediatrician, demonstrates an unwavering commitment to patients every day. He was recently recognized by the University of Florida Health Physicians (UFHP) Quality and Patient Safety Group with a “Biggest Catch” award for his exceptional leadership during an unexpected medical emergency:

“A mother presented with her daughter (the patient) to UF Health Pediatric Specialties located at the Shands Medical Plaza (SMP). Prior to arriving at the clinic, the patient’s mother fell in the parking garage and sustained bleeding/injury to her knees. During the patient’s appointment, Dr. Jolley became increasingly concerned as he observed that the patient’s mother had slurred speech and other signs of a potential medical emergency. Dr. Jolley took immediate action. Under his leadership, emergency medical services were called and the patient’s mother was transported to the emergency department for further evaluation and treatment. Determined to be critically ill, the patient’s mother was ultimately admitted to the medical intensive care unit.

Dr. Jolley’s actions exemplify our health system’s commitment to delivering the highest quality of safe, efficient care to all, which includes our patients, their family, and friends.” – Elizabeth C. Brown, DHA, MA, Clinical Quality & Education Liaison for UFHP Quality & Patient Safety

Dr. Jolley receives his award from University of Florida Health Physicians Quality and Patient Safety Group at the Department of Pediatrics Faculty Meeting on February 14, 2018
