Plays of the Week:
Excellent work to everyone on the start of this Academic Year! Hope everyone had a great July 4th holiday.
Play of the week to Dr. Anthony Lucido for his work as 3rd Deck Senior. He stayed past his shift on Friday to supervise an LP, and developed great rapport with a family going through a difficult new diagnosis. Way to set an example!
Additional play of the week to the ID team, Dr. Milissa Jones and Dr. Matthew Penfold for coming to the OR to order and process their own BAL samples. Thank you for going above and beyond for your patient.
Huge Congratulations to Maggie Hasler and her husband Hank on the birth of their daughter, Reese! Welcome to the NCC Peds family!
