Neonatologist Erick Ridout, MD, has helped care for hundreds of preemies needing critical care. His work with other clinicians to reduce needle draws in preemies has significantly improved care and outcomes, while saving millions of dollars. He shares his published research with clinicians across the country.
Here, Dr. Ridout reminisces with his own daughter, Marissa, about the babies that are “the reason for the passion, and for the work, and for the sacrifice it takes to do something really impactful.”
