A California nurse was "overjoyed" when she realized her new coworker was a former patient, NBC's Today reported Tuesday.
Vilma Wong, a longtime pediatric nurse in Palo Alto, California, recognized the last name of a young doctor who arrived in the neonatal intensive care unit last month. She asked her new colleague, Brandon Seminatore, whether he was from the area. He told her, "Yes, I was actually born in this hospital."
Wong realized she had taken care of Seminatore 28 years ago when he was born prematurely and spent 40 days in the hospital. Seminatore, who had been told about the dedicated nurses who cared for him in 1990, texted his parents about the discovery, only to receive a photo of him as an infant, sitting with Wong in the NICU.
