Imagine after five months of being pregnant, happily waiting for the next four months and then your world falls apart. All your plans are destroyed because your baby is coming now, and in walks the transport team.
Dana Baca is compassionately confident. She epitomizes the ideal NICU nurse. Many parents have stated that upon meeting her, they knew their baby was in great hands during transport to our facility because of her. That initial contact is so very important and critical. These parents trust us to care for their most precious gift. She sets the unit up for success from the beginning instilling trust in each parent.
One parent recently shared “This individual, the nurse, came to get our baby and was assigned to her daily. Dana’s care and courtesy were Outstanding. We cannot say enough good things about her professionalism, patience, and promptness. In our stressful situation with our baby girl, she was extremely calming, reassuring and informative. She worked quickly with precision and skill. A true example of what a nurse should be.”
She is a team leader and role model in the unit. She leads by example and likes things organized. She is quick to engage other staff to make things right. Her critical thinking skills allow her to complete mission critical tasks while being mindful of the flow of the unit. She is a patient advocate and is quick to ensure the needs of our littlest patients and their families are met by the team.
