New Orleans Nurses Stayed Behind During Hurricane Ida Evacuation To Care For Babies In NICU

As Hurricane Ida swept through Louisiana, the nurses inside the NICU at Ochsner Health Hospital in New Orleans volunteered to stay through the night with the babies who desperately needed them.

“I am so proud,” said nurse Paula Jean Simon. “My team pulls together, doesn’t matter what’s happening, they’re going to make sure the babies are taken care of.”
