Did you know that when I miscarried, I went to PPER. I was the most difficult time of my life, but every single nurse and doctor that was on call at 3 am was so loving, caring and tender. They spoke softly to me and made sure I was as comfortable as I could have been. PPER shared their compassion with me. I'll never forget that day, but thankful that I wasn't just a number. I was a patient in my own room with my husband where we could mourn and cry before we headed home.
BUT THIS STORY about Baby Josiah brings me hope and healing! BC of PPER being so close, they were able to save Josiah's life
On November 3, 2017, Monica Hinojosa, came in to Physicians Premier Emergency Room Calallen with complaints of abdominal pain. She was 25 weeks pregnant and suspected that her water had broken. Shortly after arrival, she spontaneously delivered an extremely delicate preterm baby boy who was not breathing. The emergency room team successfully resuscitated and called 911 for immediate transport and transfer to Bay Area Hospital where a group of physicians and nurses awaited baby. He stayed a few months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Bay Area. The Hinojosa family was fortunate to get to their closest ER in time for what is referred to medically as a precipitous labor delivery. Baby presented breach and without the immediate presence of emergency medical expertise, would not likely have survived. The Hinojosa family extend their deepest thanks to the ER staff on duty that day, including the first responders at the Annaville Fire Department.
