Co-workers describe Laurie Ketterl, a nurse manager in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), as someone who continually challenges her peers to think outside of the box in order to provide excellent patient care. Ketterl jumped into action earlier this year when a premature baby, born at just 29 weeks, and his critically ill mother were in separate Intensive Care Units. Since the mother had never seen her son and would soon undergo a life-saving surgery, Ketterl arranged for the mother and baby to see each other for the very first time via a video call using two iPads.
