During Sandy

Sandy brought massive destruction to the states just North of me. I have said a prayer for all those who have suffered loss of loved ones and for the loss of homes and property. God bless all of you!

I worked the entire 3 nights of the storm in the NICU at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland. We heard about the evacuation of the NICU in New York at NYU and our thoughts and prayers went immediately to the staff. What we were hearing was that the babies had to be hand carried down 9 flights of stairs in the dark into waiting ambulances, all while Sandy was flooding the streets! Wow! I can't imagine having to move our 45 babies under those circumstances! I know we are trained to do it but it seems so crazy. Here are some pictures that made me proud to be a NICU RN!

Nurse Margot Condon cradles a preterm baby during the evacuation.  No incubators, no heat except from Margot.


AMAZING!

This is such an inspiring share, Stephanie. It is amazing the compassion that nurses and others can give to the needy. I appreciate every time my hand is held by a nurse when I'm in an unknown situation/procedure. Hugs to you!
