Riverview nurses rally behind one of their own after a life-changing accident

Just five days before Christmas, a nurse heading to work at St. Anthony’s Hospital was involved in a life-altering car accident. Now Kate Bergoch is the one in need of care, and her fellow nurses have risen to the occasion. Bergoch’s best life is when she is wearing scrubs, but that life almost came to an end on Dec. 20. “It was slightly raining, and as far as I’ve been told, someone pulled out in front of me, and unfortunately, we hit each other pretty hard,” said the ER trauma nurse. “It was very touch and go until we got to the trauma center. They stabilized me very quickly.”
