So you've been a nurse for life oh yeah fact what draws you to the neonatal intensive care unit. I you know what am I most people fade diabetes they really think it's this Tamarine and that drawn need to pad and the ability to support this Hanley true one of the most critical kind of an airline when they're just trying to figure out how to care for this brand new baby at that. To Weiss a baby would into the knee Q. Well there are lots of greed and an extreme pre maturity they were born up to sixteen weeks early evil can have some kind. Congenital heart disease or other disease that prevents them from being able to go home and try to home that we need to help them support so. Now maybe interest in the Q well how long they typically there. I am aren't average plain as day at Randall live about twenty. Several months depending on how effective media is. I think it takes a special personally Q because I would I would be heartbroken all the time. You know you will kick advocate that I had. Played well. We see so much growth. In our media an inner feeling is that as the Fed babies get healthier health care and I think that's an early draws me Q providing this care being accused her ex. Yeah when you see the baby finally leave the hospital is probably just really warms your. It's so exciting and then they get a comeback Karen Keyes graduation a year later and their chests. And writing it's wonderful to see it's. Also some of the families that you work with. Put going through. And you know it's scary I am for it and be at have a thick speed he. There's this sense of loss of control because they're babies just sickening don't know how to help them and that's our job as nurses to find knows. Small periods of time mark mime can be mom and dad can be bad and and help them test and support their beat me. No and not in the room with the baby in May be to set in the waiting room to the other people around that they can talk to him and help them out when they're outside of them. The big tax so we are privileged to have brought in east psychologist to help the part mark Hammel me. We also have a team leaned leaned on that works better feel leaned. I'm good also. Acts. Creamy mom she'd catch your premium and earning keel. And speed and they're really good job of creating and we support for lunch is an activity that that they can decree avid. Memories and every box is in and that picture frames for their baby brother here take this to greatly aid to help support the and we just you know a little bit different form. That's must be so reassuring families. I mean you know it is and it's nice to have somebody is. Not a medical profession mall to be able to negotiate support it has kind of been through this same situation it's. The rental children's hospitals based here in Portland Oregon but you probably help people all over the Pacific northwest is that right. Yeah all up and down I five corridor as far as Alaska California and Montana and and there we go all over the place and to help support the eighties and we LT is fidelity key which is a form. It. Electronically viewing the babies that are born and in my car outlying community hospital for help support the nurses in the eighties until we can get our transport teams there. That's been pretty great thing we we have told doc here and heard the radio stations and to tell a baby must be something similar right yet very similar. So they can Mitt and watch the baby over video. Yet we have like a high definition real bat that outlying hospitals where we can hand you to be be why in the meat can he with the and a Catholic the baby's needs are we can help support that he met there with the eighty and next stats troubleshooting trying to figure out what the beanie need help support that eighty through whatever transition scored nine. That's some pretty great advancements in medicine are huge. So tell me why Randall Children's Hospital is is so special and so different from other and accuse around the country. It is there a freestanding Children's Hospital Children's Hospital its focus on children and and you know when he tries for meeting the highest quality of care and we have some of the best outcomes and that's results and survival rates across the nation and and and that the league using the Vermont Oxford. And National Mall data collection and so where we are leader in change and developing some of these best practices and it is just the place to be. If you've been with news with Randall children's hospital for a while it almost at thirteen years plow to go a long time back. What kind of changes have you seen over those thirteen years of good. It so ran both open in 2012 and Craig should now than meets he'll lead over at the and mile campus. And we ran out of Q being groomed and and all the babies were in together in this state Reynolds. And we can transition to England rim care which has been a huge bonus and positive forward. Not only growth and development are in our babies and that's providing him much more quiet environment common environments. But also really promoting the feeling to be there participating in the care and have there. Ability to dot with the patient and the BB without having to be in this big open room. Is that them partly called family integrated care. It can't the only integrated care that's. But we are frustrating for and that's history teacher even that. It came meat and he only centered care and now we're carrying it even more working leader during a lot of the work that. The nurse is and positioned to be greeted like changing a diaper. And we're now peaking at Hanley even on the east most of my babies that helped being able to change the paper. And they helped warm milk that we're gonna feed through accused can help. FEMA could just get out of bed until comfortable with that with all of the devices and wires to things the BD to might be connected to you. How we seen that seems families. And they feel more empowered if they feel like your mom and dad. Yeah I can imagine it because it brought you probably feel if you have a baby in the new Q you probably feel like oh I can't get close and it shouldn't archway maybe it's too delicate. Yeah there is there a little bit of a sense of loss of control and it's hard to bond because the BB Charlie and I collapse until how to lead very Cadbury your pity feeling at this defining these ways to be able to perform these small task. And that really helps families feel like they're connecting to their babies they're bonding with their feet. Which isn't very important for the BD when it comes to growth and development and getting healthy. Absolutely the baby wants to be your mom and dad exactly do they do they if there's a younger brother or sister or do they get involved too. Absolutely hand we have that's how life and program here at Randall. And as part of this Hanley integrated care we I'm try to raise as much as he can look at the green could help and allow them to help where they can and. It's a death of the tells you were about how impact fullest has been with bigs. Or without questioning and have you do you have data that shows how impact fullest has been with the babies. You know we're just starting to collect fat cats no where in the early stages and we don't have a whole lot that. And our patient satisfaction scores have gone. And our hands mean I'm feedback that they feel like they can go home and care for their beady is what we're straining for an apple or seen. We're talking today with Sarah stem fleet with Randall Children's Hospital at legacy Emanuel in the new Q and one of the things we do wanna talk about today is carts for kids could tell us about carts for kids. Yes two parts kid did a program where you. Going to the grocery store and you I cannot I need to pack that they cards for kids and how their Randall children's and legacy logo on them. And when you purchase that product. Part of the proceeds go to Q their Randall sneaky looks. And our goal is saturated million dollars far out of the only integrated care. In our in Tokyo. A million dollars add or edit or just over 600000 now I'll let us also that we're almost there are very excited. That's an easy way for listeners to help out you're going shopping anyway so why not just buy the products that have the things on the gas and which grocery stores there are participating in this. And there's our all of there Greg she start up again I've I've encore. Native foods Q if EU Roth fresh market they played churn thunderbird market without wing terror. Do pay and there are participating in giving Tarkanian eighties. Let's seems like they're pretty much every grocery store in town flame. Now what kind of impact has this been having over the years he doesn't newness of the cards for kids for a couple years. I think that the other techie here of the campaign. We've brought in great pain like turn this thing says there's Adam recliner. Fedor go able to go into pre positioned thorn now allowing. The ability to do you can't stand for prolonged period of time which is a huge huge huge benefit our babies. We've brought in several of those reclining chairs. I'm with transitions come out of our rooms to have he had. It's bad generic store really getting family to be in the room that much as possible participate in the care as much as possible. I only brought in pain ticker symbol of our meetings still to help moms and breastfeed their babies Whitney hand and we've been able to bring in and. That's on the X some really important stuff. Yet this is huge it makes a difference for the families well some goals for the future than you. And who didn't see we have so many goals we wanna continue to build the Hanley integrated care. Model for that skimming they're able to be supported in Munich you at all times so this can be as simple as. Bring Myanmar complainer is bringing in mark bed. I'm finding ways to bring and and breast pump or and other educational pieces for mom and dad to help prepare them that they call home. We can beat me. Discussed discrete stuff come and operate the act. Yet just some some special patient stories to deter this. And that IQ we had a patient. Born extremely premature about 23 and six weeks about six weeks. Sixteen weeks early. And they've been behind at challenging journey in the making spent over a hundred days went that's. And it BD live at home and is I'm writing and doing well and mom and dad and bring him back periodic meeting he had an anti. He's just and I'm happy and meeting milestones he has sparred just blast that he is doing so well. Well. The ages of most of the babies that you do work with. It rain and I and it depends on when their boring and I just patient that they can be as early as sixteen weeks that's about twenty for a week he'll. And gets a little over half a pregnancy when the babies born. And Q new warrants. That are here and like it that they can be here for just a few days they need get a little bit of support cheek several months. What is the most premature baby you've ever experienced. And if he'd be just a little less that is sixteen weeks so to when he three. He and a half weeks I'm just station in the crazies in it they're so tiny and so fragile all and it. Amazing collection growing see how we can support them like the Fam Maureen. Tell us about some of the stuff that works with these premature babies and in north rabies in general. Yeah. We have such a huge multi professional team we have the meaning ecologists at hope that. I'm established the clinic caring kid overall. And track pad. Care for diabetes and the bad I nurses who were there every day every moment that eighty flights to help support them through whatever hurdler going troops. We have an occupational therapy and speech therapy to help where. I'm developmental position Meehan brain development and learning how to get to eat eat your from the fracture from a bottle. Lactation who helped mom for par with Brad providing her breast milk for that Bibi can have breast small which it says. A meeting source of nutrition and and and then helping that baby transition to be able to go to breast. And actually have respiratory therapists we have wouldn't care team we have pediatric surgery if that's with a BB needs them which can help at all. He doubtless you've got to have a all right yes and we bill that looks so you've been with Randall saloons hospital he's in for thirteen years back. That's great yet have you seen any of the children that well started out as a bed just a tiny baby thirteen years ago when they come back to say hi. You know they deal. We've had several families come back and and we have that annual. The only reunion in ways they get to bring their children at only eighteen kids and I met kids from. Too many years ago who are trading and in college comeback can visit including keep the nurses that are still here that cared forum in the positions that are still here and her arms so. What do you get a PM and we get celebrate with. Baton well that's great knack. Now do you ever except volunteers. We do we actually have a very robust volunteer and group that and we love having them they are a huge in school part of our team and done they do so much for the patient and damn plane. Is there a need for nurses right now. They are in need there's always a need for nurse visits that growing field and have the where experience seeing as that. I baby boomers start to retire in Turkey EU and go into there next journey. How were finding more and Maher and needs for our nurse says it. Would you recommend to somebody was thinking about being eve and new Q nurse. I go out and get your back where I am hearing seeing and get experience and everything outdo each Bernanke is that you're interested and then. Qatar talking with and then networking and at math questions we're always happy that the part that and those that are interested in becoming a make dinner. When you first started out in nursing where you immediately attracted to him in the Q. No oil whether that the but I actually wanted to going to geriatrics believe that are not on the opposite ends of the secretary opposite and and and in my pain and senior year I got the opportunity to go into any Q and that's when I fell in love and I haven't looked back. But but but but how is your life changed since sort of we're human babies. And you know. I have a lot more Wear and understanding and compassion for the mom. And I have. A lot more are. Add to cooled in resource it now that I can share with Mike Hanley is the health and through committees really really hard tying. And then really scary kind until I can think as say human being just learning about kindness and compassion and it's. He and to supporting feeling during this time. When you first started out fourteen years ago when Howard things. Different today than they were there and back then. I think hearing. A little bit different view on how would he get parents involved in carrying pretty patient and any babies. And and it it wasn't that Larry need to beat. And we've grown a lot we've really and that is that and means especially mom and ask are they key to you having BDB successfully many that Tokyo. Don't imagine it probably didn't back in the day when they didn't let parents be to involved. Act does seems kind of foreign now doesn't that. Yeah how we used to have a lake restricted visiting hours on camera needs they used to have limited time when they could hold the BB. And limited time it will make head and even if he in the room are in that that the Kennedy with the baby and now we've kind of said. Well that's why why don't we get that that makes no sense and so now and then leave early. What's that and we want parent could be your twenty per heavenly my parents to be involved we want parents to be able to feel comfortable puke. That's maybe be comfort there BD all of their baby. That's what the baby wants chatted it exactly what eighty watt. So but you have to do some coaxing with the parents to get them in the you know back cut Kaka and the. I think clearly where parents may feel challenged is. When their Hillary thickened when there's so little. There's I think there's fear that that they're gonna hurt Debbie meat and so it's a lot of education and on and that hair types and there Adam. Ability is complain and be airlifted AB it actually comforting and actually will help BB. Let's talk a little bit more about the carts for kids program in sip protesting grocery stores you can just go in and your shopping and then some of that money goes to the Randall Children's Hospital yeah that. What kind of impact do you think cards for kids is having. Eight you know with a huge were able to provide aid ams so much more are. And support for our handling now to have them here any unit. Hopefully tweak our Kevin as much as they learned. And that the ability to empower and should be able to go home and feel confident that they can care for their baby when they go home. Don't mean to put on the spot to do you know any of those particular products that are there helping to support Randall Children's Hospital. Who Hindi name brands. Yeah that's the best thing to do is always look for the tea Gallic head attack and I'm not sure there's an old man old. The Rendell a list of the grocery stores in time. Now we have Albert then food for last. Fred Myers make a foods q.s he brought fresh market they play third and thunderbird market. It's strictly win code in Japan for the. So would you be pretty hard pressed not to find grocery store that's helping to support Randall Children's Hospital. Yeah and that they attack on the product is huge you can find it anywhere. And would you your FaceBook page right now and it's a big giant red arrow yet but suddenly we're gonna find and the grocery stores get a threat candidate how long is cards for kid's going on. All it is going. And on her feet and. And the month I believed policy cuts and got some time it's get under your shopping you can support them a couple of different times or look at the next morning.
