9 Nurses working at the Same Hospital are ‘Pregnant together’

Interestingly, the women were seen holding cards in a variety of colours like pink, blue, yellow and green, and they said they were happy to be able to experience their pregnancies altogether.
“After each one of us started to say, ‘We’re pregnant,’ I think it was a happier announcement each time, and we’re all there for each other,” nurse Erin Grenier told WMTV.
“There have been times where we’ve been the patient. So it’s been great to have each other either being our nurse or just being there for us, sending us a message, checking in on us making sure everything is okay,” she added.
Another nurse identified as Amanda Spear said, “It’s really nice coming to work and seeing other people who are just as pregnant and watching their bellies pop and just talking about these experiences that we are going through together.”
“I think we’re looking forward to raising our babies together. To having friends, playdates and continuing the support of having shared experiences of all having babies together,” registered nurse Holly Selby said.
The women were stunned to see so much attention given to them on social media platforms.
“I don’t think it hit home until we took a picture and it was on social media and we were getting all this attention,” registered nurse Lonnie Soucie added. “And then it was like, ‘Whoa, you weren’t kidding!'”
“I think we’re looking forward to raising our babies together. To having friends, playdates and continuing the support of having shared experiences of all having babies together,” Holly Selby said.
The hospital confirmed that the shifts would be ‘totally covered’ for the duration of their maternity leave.
Govt hospital’s nurse cuts baby’s thumb instead of bandage
In what was a huge case of negligence that surfaced from a government hospital in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad, a baby girl, unfortunately, lost her thumb because the nurse was reckless during the operation.
The five-month-old baby girl was admitted to Vadilal Sarabhai (VS) Hospital in Ahmedabad, as she was diagnosed with pneumonia.
The day, the baby girl had to be discharged from the hospital after recovery, the nurse attempted to take out the needle in her left arm and in the process of cutting the bandage, she carelessly cut the baby’s thumb along with it.
The baby girl was brought to the hospital by her parents as she was suffering from cold and cough. A doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia and admitted her to the hospital.
When the baby had to be discharged, doctor told the nurse to remove the needle puncture in her arm that was used for the injection.
For now, the girl has been admitted for treatment in the pediatric department of the hospital.
Nonetheless, her parents are absolutely livid with hospital’s negligence.
Farhan Banu who is baby girl’s mother said that on May 29, her baby was under the weather because of which she came to the hospital to get her medicine but the doctor advised for her to be admitted immediately.
Banu said when on June 2, the baby’s finger got cut when she was being discharged. She said that usually scissors are not used to cut open a baby’s bandage.
Soon after the incident, the hospital administration called for an emergency operation and the girl’s thumb was put back soon.
Annoyed by hospital’s negligence, the parents then went to the police and filed a case against the nurse and the hospital, which comes under Ahmedabad municipal corporation.
