Ten babies are safe in Atlanta, Ga., after a group of hospital staffers drove to the coast to remove the sick infants from Hurricane Dorian’s path, according to an article on the Yahoo.com website.
Three teams of drivers, respiratory nurses and therapists from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta drove to a pair of hospitals in Savannah to move vulnerable infants to the Atlanta facility.
The journeys took 12 hours with the teams heading out to Savannah last Monday around 3 p.m. and the last of the three vehicles returning to the Atlanta hospital on Tuesday around 8 a.m.
“These kids, they were in an intensive care unit and we were able to provide intensive care unit level of care while in a truck. So they absolutely are mini ICUs on wheels.” said Rana Roberts, a registered nurse and director of trauma and transportation at the Atlanta hospital.See the latest posts on our homepage
