CHOP nurses ask for 10 therapeutic pillows. Receive 100.
CHOP nurses Megan and Carolyn noticed one of their patients used his own special therapeutic pillow after abdominal surgery to reduce his pain during coughing episodes.
Inspired to bring this comfort to more patients, the two nurses quickly requested 10 therapeutic pillows through the Monday Life.
Within a week, 100 pillows were funded (nursing units are incredible at rallying support). Thanks to the creativity of Megan and Carolyn, and the innovative culture of CHOP development, many abdominal surgery patients will now feel less pain.
