Kids of Hadassah Staff Invited for Insider View of ORs

Wednesday, Jan 4 2017

Judith Essuied, Chief Operating Room Nurse at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, and her nursing colleagues decided that since “we put in long hours and have many emergencies that impinge on family plans,” it would help to give our children an insider's tour.

The outgrowth of that realization was the creation of a kids' visiting day to the underground operating rooms of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower on the Friday of Hanukkah. Forty six children of staff members suited up and toured the new high-tech surgery rooms. “It was such a success,” relates Julie, ”that we hope to make it a Hanukah tradition." In fact, the surgeons are also planning a kids’ tour of their own.
