A nurse in St. Petersburg, Florida, really put the “care” in “healthcare” when she came up with a creative way to help a nervous kid take three shots.
The young patient in question, Dimitri, was terrified to receive vaccinations so his grandmother attempted to bribe him with five dollars, saying he’d get the money if he remained calm during his shots.
“He has always had a hard time when it comes to doctors visits… but the M.A. was phenomenal with him and helped him get through it,” explained Dimitri’s grandmother, Tiffany.
Dimitri still made sure to tell the nurse that he didn’t cry, and she gave him his five dollars. Watch this video to see a delightful interaction between the nurse and her sweet patient.
