Ken Sampson was on his way home on July 24, 2012 when he recognized one of our consumers walking down a busy street followed by a residential van. The residential staff was having difficulty getting the consumer in the vehicle. Ken pulled over and intervened.
It took Ken approximately one hour to get this individual in his car to bring her home. During this time the police arrived and Ken asked that they stay back as to not exacerbate the situation. Once Ken was able to get her home he sat outside with her and was able to convince her to take her medication and go inside. Ken spent two and a half hours intervening in this incident.
I felt Ken went above and beyond his job responsibilities, and during unscheduled work time, in assisting with this situation and helping this individual
