Garrett has nominated Alex from Ninewells Hospital for our NICU Superhero Award because he was so grateful for the way she cared for his daughter, Eleanor, during her neonatal stay.
"Alex was absolutely fabulous.
She was thoroughly competent, efficient, kind, and thoughtful.
Alex was really attentive to Eleanor and was fast at getting medical reviews when needed.
Especially on the first few days of being in the NICU, having Alex's care made a huge difference to getting Eleanor's colour-changing episodes identified and addressed quickly.
We really felt Eleanor was safe with her and were amazed at how she managed to give such individual and personable care to all of the children."
Congratulations Alex! The way you care for each child makes such a difference to families during their time on the unit. We're in awe of how you make families feel safe during such a difficult time.
