MONTCLAIR, New Jersey (June 2, 2022) – Mountainside's Highly Reliable Hero Award was created to celebrate the heroes around us - the person or department that goes out of their way to do extraordinary things for our patients, family members and fellow teammates.
We are proud to recognize members for our Labor and Delivery team with this award. The team, which included nurses Naomi Sebastien, Sheila Magarino, Tiffany Chavez, Anya Jones, Gabriella Hocta and doctors Jonathan Mintzer and Fares Diarbakerli, jumped into quick action when faced with the impending delivery of a very preterm infant in the middle of the night. When the 23-week old baby couldn't wait for delivery upon mom's arrival to the facility, this team was at the ready. Without hesitation and with almost telepathic communication, they lept into action and seamlessly delivered and stabilized the baby while other team members prepared for transport. Their collaborative efforts and calm critical thinking saved this baby's life.
