Help for Haiti: One Nurse's Story

By CHI Health February 12, 2010 Posted in: Heart Health

For the past month, many of us have found ourselves mesmerized by the images coming out of Haiti. We’ve sent donations, we’ve collected supplies – but, for a group of Alegent Health workers, that just wasn’t enough.

Seventeen of our own – all nurses and other staff from CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy and Mercy Hospitals – volunteered their time and energy to fly south and care for victims along the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

This is one of their stories.

We know help for Haiti is coming from all across our community. What have you and your family done to help?
