Naloxone coverage would expand under Pettersen bill
"(Doctors at Swedish) have taken it upon themselves to make sure that everybody like my mom who shows up here is given Naloxone if they are at risk of an overdose. This overdose reversal drug, they are given it in person," Pettersen said.
Pettersen was back home in Colorado on Thursday, commemorating the day at a location that is special to her: Swedish Medical Center in Englewood.
It’s the hospital where her mother was treated for addiction. Pettersen credited the staff there for saving her mom’s life.
She said it was her first time walking the halls of the facility again since her mom was in the emergency room.
