CHC boasts first graduate - and he’s not even 1

Stacey Smith, right, pediatric cardiovascular nurse care coordinator in Batson Children’s Hospital, holds Landon Berry while visiting with his parents, Jason and Meagan Berry, during a celebration of the first graduate of the Home Monitoring Program.

The Children’s Heart Center at UMMC is 1 of 52 sites in the country that participate in the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative, which improves care for the most high-risk infants between discharge from their initial open-heart surgery and admission for a Stage 2 heart procedure.

One key component of the collaborative is the Home Monitoring Program, in which daily vital signs and growth are followed closely by an R.N./N.P. The babies are seen every one-to-two weeks by a multidisciplinary clinic team to that includes nurses, nutritionists, social workers, speech therapists and cardiologists.
