LAFAYETTE, La. - Ochsner Lafayette General Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) received six babies from Terrebonne General Medical Center as part of their evacuation due to damage from Hurricane Ida.

It's been a team effort according to Critical Care Nurse Manager Meagan Diagle with members of their Maternal Newborn Pediatric Services offering to work extra shifts, coming in on their days off and staying late for feedings to make sure the NICU is fully staffed.

All six tiny humans are in stable condition and everyone is hopeful to be reunited with their families very soon.
