Youmna Mousattat, MD, a pediatrician at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital, was nominated not only for the care she provided a young patient, but also for the extra steps she took to make the girl feel special.
The patient came to the ED at Women and Children's Hospital and saw Dr. Mousattat. Aside from her illness, she was upset because it was her birthday. Mousattat promised to take care of her and bring her cake. Upon admission, the nursing staff showed the patient extra love and attention. Mousattat later showed up with a piece of cake as promised. That eased the fears of the little girl and demonstrated to her parents that Mousattat could be trusted to follow through with care.
After discharge, Mousattat showed up at the girl's belated birthday party and took pictures with her.
