Do you have a bed available in the PICU?

2 May, 2017|

I was recently called by a friend who works in an adult ICU. He had been rotating in our pediatric ICU few years ago: - "Hi Javi, sorry to call you during work hours but a colleague from the ICU is having a terrible time.

My life in three bags

25 February, 2017|
