Support for PICU Nurses at Children's Hospital & Research Center
- 8Jan 7 by AOx1 GuideI thought I would start a separate thread as a space to send good thoughts, encouragement, prayer, or supportive comments for our peers, the PICU nurses of Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland. To my fellow nurses, I have stood where you're standing. To continue to care and give your all in the midst of challenge, trials, and heartbreak shows your qualities. Take care of yourselves. May your hearts heal and I wish you peace in this storm. On the hospital's website, you can donate ito Children's in honor of the PICU nurses if you wish. It lets you specify a fund and even to give in honor of a person/group.

Just hear on the news that they were able to transfer that child to another facility, probably a pedi LTAC-capable one. Keeping the identity quiet for obv reasons.
Prayers for that staff also.Last edit by amoLucia on Jan 7 : Reason: new info

- 0Jan 9 by Esme12 Asst. AdminI think the professionalism and care that all the nurses have showed in the care of this poor unfortunate child in spite of her families alleged behavior is an example that we should all be proud of....how difficult it must have been all these weeks coming in and out of work, dealing with the press presence, dealing with the families disruptive behavior in the ICU and the stress to the other families. It had to be exhausting beyond belief. Kudos to a job well done! We stand right bedide you!
Nursing is not for the faint of heart....((BUG HUGS)) to all the nurses involved in this case.
