Batson 24/7 | Call Me Maybe | Four-Year Old Bone Marrow Patient Returns To See Nurses
Produced by Jim Albritton | Four-year old Batson Children's Hospital patient Tia Haynes from Gulfport recently had a bone marrow transplant, spending six weeks in the bone marrow transplant unit at the Wallace Conerly Critical Care Hospital at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. During her weekly check-up at the Children's Cancer Center at Batson, she literally ran back to see the nurses who cared for her while in isolation. At Batson Children's Hospital the one constant is time. Morning rounds at 7 a.m. A heliport that never closes. Pediatric ambulances ready at a moment's notice. Newborns in a minute-by-minute struggle for life. A surgery waiting room where time seemingly stands still. And a staff that constantly tries to separate hours-on from hours-off. These are their stories: Batson 24/7.
