Prom Day for 13-Year-Old Patient at Cohen Children's Medical Center
A dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social workers and Child Life specialists at Cohen Children's Medical Center joined this week to make sure 13-year-old Itzia Argueta of Uniondale, LI, was able to celebrate her prom day, despite being in the hospital. Stacy McGeechan, MD, Itzia's attending physician, described her patient as "the happiest child on the floor." So it was shocking to the doctor to find Itzia sobbing on Thursday. A brief conversation revealed that her prom was the next day. The eighth-grader was saddened that she would miss out on celebrating the big event with her friends from Turtle Hook Middle School in Uniondale. Itzia has been at the hospital since being admitted June 12. She is still being evaluated.
