Top 5 HCA Blog Posts of 2012

1. Happy Nurses Week Y’all Music Video – this one was a lot of fun to make. We even gave away the song for free…which, technically, you can still download.

2. When is Full Term, Full Term in a Pregnancy – our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Perlin, put this great post together about our 39 Weeks study.

3. Can Access to an EKG on Your Phone Save a Life? – Dr. Divya Shroff does a fantastic job discussing the importance of speed in patient care. Readers really liked this one.

4. Understanding Newborn Bereavement; Laurie Van Damme Interview – by far, this post has the most comments of any on the site. Laurie does such a great job in this interview with CNO Jane Englebright, explaining the importance of supporting families who lose a newborn.

5. Catching Up with Hannah Curlee One Year After the Biggest Loser – we all love Hannah. It’s been so good to have her back at HCA after placing second in NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
