• UMMC Medical ICU and Emergency Department

    Located in Baltimore, MD

    Employee’s Perspective:

    I’m writing to bring attention to two leaders at UMMC. For the employees in our MICU and ED, the lactation room was too far to be convenient. In the ED, Dr. Angela Smedley and in the MICU, nurse Kerry Sue Mueller transformed rooms which had once upon a time been used as call rooms into lactation rooms. Each is outfitted with a telephone, computer (for employees who like to catch up on charting while on break) and a Medela Symphony pump, just like what we provide for our patients. The rooms lock to provide un-interrupted privacy and are both labeled as lactation rooms but also have signs on the doors to indicate when they are occupied.
