Transport nurses give rides that can save lives

If a sick child needs to be moved, the UC Davis Children’s Hospital Pediatric Transport team will likely get the call.

Every year, transport nurses like Jackie Hrabowski help move more than 600 children by car, plane or helicopter. Those rides could mean life or death.

“As we are traveling, we are planning on every case scenarios,” Hrabowski explained. “We have three or four plans for when we arrive at the hospital — if the patient is going to be sick, if the patient is going to be real sick or we are just really really bad.”
