St. Michael’s resolves to stop at nothing in 2020

We asked our NICU and maternal care medical teams to tell us their “Stop at Nothing” resolutions for the New Year.

We asked our NICU and maternal care medical teams to tell us their “Stop at Nothing” resolutions for the New Year.

Here is what they said:

In 2020, I will stop at nothing…

“When a newborn’s first breath is a cry for help.” Catherine Bishop, Clinical Nurse Educator, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

“To deliver equitable, compassionate and intensive care for families in crisis.” Dr. Douglas Campbell, Director, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

“To always make my patients my first priority. I am a nurse because of them and, at the end of the day, even if they forget my name, I want them to never forget how I made them feel.” Grace Pascual, Registered Nurse, Obstetrics and Gynecology

“To share my research on the use of eye masks with the global medical community, so that infants born pre-term, who are at high risk of retinopathy of prematurity, will experience less stress when screened for this disorder, which can cause blindness.” Jeanne Zielonka, Nurse Practitioner, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

“To increase the number of our highest-risk babies eligible to receive donated breast milk, which helps protect them against life-threatening diseases and improves their overall health.” Alyson Martinez, Registered Dietician, Pediatrics

“To always hear the voices of our patients and their families, so that their feedback informs changes and our team consistently delivers a positive experience.” Michelle O’Connor, Registered Nurse and Manager, Women’s and Children’s Health
