Doc Now Works With Nurse Who Helped Save Him as a Baby

"His last name sounded very familiar", Wong was quoted as saying.

"Fast forward almost 30 years, and Vilma recognized Brandon's name while he was rounding at our hospital".

Seminatore is now a second-year pediatric neurology resident at the same hospital where he was born.

She then asked Brandon if his dad was a police officer.

Paediatric resident Brandon Seminatore was doing a month-long rotation at the same neonatal intensive care unit where he was cared for as a newborn when he came across someone from his past.

As it became more and more clear that the grown man standing in front of her had been the tiny baby she had tended to in his greatest hour of need, she asked one final question that made him realize who she is. "Working next to a patient I cared for is the best reward a nurse could get". "And that as a matter of fact, he was a premature baby born at our hospital".

Hospital Lucile Packard Children's Hospital chose to publish on his page in Facebook unique story of the reunification of Wilma and Brandon.

Mr Seminatore weighed two pounds and six ounces, the size of a small pineapple, when he was born in 1990.

"I showed Vilma the picture and she lit up", Seminatore said.

The hospital's Facebook post drew more than 700 comments, hundreds of them from parents and fellow health care professionals lauding Wong's skill and dedication.

During his time in the NICU, Vilma Wong was his primary care nurse. Wong, now 54, said she loves her work and has no plans to retire.

"There was a big silence", Wong said.

Seminatore said, "She cares deeply for her patients, to the point that she was able to remember a patient's name nearly three decades later".

"I needed an incubator to keep me warm, a ventilator to help me breath, and had near endless pokes and prods to make sure I was healthy and growing appropriately", Seminatore said in the statement.

Seminatore said meeting her again was "surreal" but he was touched that he still remembered him considering how many babies she had to look after over the years.

"They were wonderful nurses", Laura Seminatore said.

Seminatore, who is studying to be a childhood neurologist, is grateful for the care he received early in his life.
