State: Salem, MA
Facility: Mass General for Children at North Shore Medical Center
Michael was admitted to our inpatient unit with a ruptured appendix. He was hospitalized for approximately two weeks. During his hospitalization, Michael endured many complications. He exemplified bravery and instilled a sense of calm with the staff. Michael really knows how to “go with the flow”. His mother was also hospitalized a couple of days after him and there were no other family members who could stay overnight with him. Through it all, he never became hostile or upset at any time and fully complied with his treatment. Michael is definitely one patient the staff will never forget.
