Facility:Kadlec Regional Medical Center
Dominic is heroic because of the strength and courage he has displayed during his stay at Kadlec Regional Medical Center since his recent diagnosis with diabetes. He has had to endure over 20 pokes to try and start a second IV to get his sugar levels under control. After all the attempts and no success, the staff was able to get his levels under control with only one IV to save him from more pokes. Through everything, his nurses said he didn’t complain once. Despite the long nights in the hospital, continual blood sugar tests, lab draws, new diabetic diet, and calorie counting, Dominic continues to let his sweet and polite personality shine though. He is a HERO in the eyes of the entire Kadlec Regional Medical Center Pediatric Staff!
