A California nurse has realized one of the hospital’s new pediatric residents was much more than just a co-worker.
According to Stanford Children’s Health Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, Vilma Wong was the primary care nurse for pediatric resident Brandon Seminatore, MD, nearly 30 years ago.
The hospital said Brandon was born 28 years ago in its NICU; at just 29 weeks old. The hospital said Vilma recognized Brandon’s as he was making his rounds in the hospital.
“Meeting Vilma was a surreal experience,” Brandon told Standford Children’s. “When Vilma recognized my name, it truly sunk in that I was one of these babies.
I’ve come full-circle and I’m taking care of babies with the nurse that took care of me.” Vilma said she was in shock, but overjoyed.
