It was a special and very unique day that both my daughter and I cared for the same patient. I work as a nurse on Shapiro 8 — I just reached 38 years at the Brigham — and my daughter works in the Oncology Float Pool. I was assigned the patient on my floor and she needed chemotherapy, and it just so happened that my daughter, Emily Lutes, BSN, was the resource nurse for Oncology that day and came to administer the chemo.

A colleague took a picture of this special moment. Emily is a fourth-generation nurse, as my mother and grandmother were also nurses.
