It’s that time of year - NICU Reunion on Saturday, Oct. 25!

The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing, and our neonatal intensive care unit is once again getting ready to welcome hundreds of families from around the Central Valley, to reunite with the NICU team for fun, games, and fellowship. Last year, more than 300 people attended the first ever NICU Reunion and the projection for this year’s attendance is even higher, as word has spread, and excitement for this event builds!

"Spiritual Well-Being, Nourishing the well-spring" is the theme of the nation-wide Pastoral Care week, October 20-24. It could hardly be more a more appropriate theme for those of us who live in the drought stricken Central Valley of California. We see thirsty plants and trees around us and read in the paper of neighbors whose wells are drying up.

Working over four decades as a nurse, I’ve been privileged to work in different roles.  As direct care nurse in Med Surg, Oncology and ICU, I was able to provide comfort and care to patients and their families at one of the most stressful time in their lives. As Community’s Chief Nurse, I love hosting the nursing scholarship awards ceremony each year and reading the essays from Community Medical Centers’ current and future nurses.

Community Regional Medical Center recently began to offer internet safety classes to educate our employees and the community on the risks to children accessing internet from mobile devices and personal or family computers. It was a powerful, eye-opening experience for many parents and grandparents – hitting on familiar and not so familiar issues such as cyberbullying, sexting, exposure to inappropriate content, posting of personal and indecent photos or information, as well as hackers, predators and harmful “mobile apps” to watch out for.
