On two hours’ notice and without knowing what they would face, 13 nurses from Christus Health System in eastern Texas boarded a plane bound for San Antonio on Aug. 25 to help colleagues deal with Hurricane Harvey’s wrath.
With many Christus facilities located in southern and eastern Texas and Louisiana, multiple sites were affected by the hurricane. When nursing leadership at Christus St. Michael Health System heard reports of NICU babies and other patients being transferred from stricken areas to San Antonio, Louise Thornell, MSN, MSBA, RN, NE-BC, VP/CNO at Christus St. Michael asked, “How can we help?” The answer: “We need nurses.”
