Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Andrew Warren and Dr. Rebecca Morgis, who responded to a Code Purple for a baby with Meconium Aspiration. The NICU team said they were both extremely helpful with prepping and placing lines. In addition, the NICU resident, Dr. Bailey Howard, did a fantastic job as head of the bed, and recognized the need to escalate care.
