A Nurse on Rescuing Critically Ill Babies From Hurricane Harvey
New York Magazine - Around lunchtime on Thursday, the team at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth got the call they’d been preparing for ever since Hurricane Harvey’s massive scale had been announced. A hospital in Corpus Christi needed their help transporting ten critically ill newborns out of the path of the storm.
Debbie Boudreaux, director of the transportation team and a neonatal nurse at Cook Children’s, sprang into action, scrambling to get planes to transport the infants 400 miles north to Fort Worth. (With one exception, their parents would have to drive separately.)
