Continually striving for better
In this issue of Cart Wheels, you will find the Children’s Hospital Foundation
2012 annual report. The Children’s Hospital Foundation exclusively raises millions
of dollars for Kosair Children’s Hospital, Kosair Children’s Medical Center –
Brownsboro and Norton Women’s and Kosair Children’s Hospital (opening in 2014
on the current Norton Suburban Hospital campus). These funds support programs,
equipment and facilities, research, advocacy and education at Kentucky’s only
full-service, free-standing pediatric hospital and its sister facilities.
Thanks to donations from the community in 2012, the Children’s Hospital
Foundation was able to provide more than $11.4 million to drive improvements
and support the needs of Kosair Children’s Hospital and Kosair Children’s Medical
Center – Brownsboro, which serve more than 155,000 children annually from
throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
Looking ahead, the community’s dollars are at work more than ever before. This
year, Norton Healthcare has committed more than $35 million toward a $70 million
renovation project that will improve the hospital’s neonatal and pediatric intensive
care units, upgrade pediatric cardiac surgery operating rooms, revamp the main
entrance and add a new elevator.
A nearly $90 million, two-year project is transforming the 373-bed
Norton Suburban Hospital on the St. Matthews campus into a new women’s
and children’s hospital, which will change the face of health care in our region.
Norton Women’s and Kosair Children’s Hospital will write a new chapter in our
community’s history book. It will be the first facility of its kind in our region —
a testimony to the evolution of health care.
Improving patient care always has been — and will always be — our top priority.
And that could not happen without your support. Thanks to the community’s
generosity, we have many accomplishments and milestones to celebrate and be
thankful for; but we have even more to strive for in the future.
On behalf of everyone at Kosair Children’s Hospital and Kosair Children’s Medical
Center – Brownsboro, we thank you for partnering with us as we move forward.

Ahead of the times

Kentucky requires newborn heart
screening, a longtime practice at
Kosair Children’s Hospital
ess is the only child of Todd and Lee Margaret Johnson
born without a heart condition. Todd and Lee have spent
numerous evenings — 14 months’ worth by their calculations — at
Kosair Children’s Hospital. That doesn’t include all the day trips from
their Bardstown home for their children’s chest X-rays, lab work,
outpatient cardiac catheterizations, surgeries and more.
Edie was born with a hole in the center of her heart, Ike has
half a heart and Annie had her first heart transplant when she was
just 1 year old. From Edie’s heart repair in 1992 to Annie’s second
of two heart transplants in 2010, the Johnsons have personally
experienced something rare — two decades of advancements in
pediatric heart care.
None of our children think [the
hospital is] a big scary place. Annie
thinks it’s the biggest treat in the
world. She is treated like a queen.”
–Lee Margaret Johnson
“Edie was the beginning of a very long continued relationship with
Kosair Children’s Hospital and the group of special people there who
take care of heart kids,” Lee said. “The first eight months of Edie’s
life was spent trying to keep her out of heart failure. We spent many
nights on ‘4 West’ that summer and fall.”
4 West is the surgical floor at Kosair Children’s Hospital. Back
during Edie’s first visit, the hospital had five floors, and physicians
performed surgeries across the street at Norton Hospital.
Today, surgeons operate on patients at Kosair Children’s Hospital,
which now has eight floors. The 26-bed “Just for Kids” Critical Care
Center will soon be expanded. It is the only pediatric intensive care
unit of its kind in Kentucky. Located on the fourth floor and adorned
with colorful ceiling murals, over the years the center has evolved
into a place that is equipped to care for the most fragile patients.
“A year’s time in the medical field and the cardiac advancements
are huge,” said Lee, a first-grade teacher. “For us, it is extremely
And now — spurred by substantial growth — Kosair Children’s
Hospital is entering an unprecedented time in its care for young
heart patients. The hospital, with support from the University of
Louisville, has committed to bringing four additional cardiologists to
Louisville in the next two years along with a third heart surgeon and
support for an existing cardiologist’s training in heart failure/heart
Pediatric surgery suites will be upgraded, and 17 new beds in
the “Just for Kids” Critical Care Center will become a new pediatric
cardiac intensive care unit (CICU). Physicians, nurse practitioners,
nurses, nurse educators, respiratory therapists and pharmacists will
be specifically trained and dedicated to providing the best care to
patients with heart conditions and those requiring surgery. The CICU
should be completed by 2016.
“The recent growth here is unparalleled,” said Erle H.
Austin III, M.D., chief of cardiothoracic surgery at Kosair Children’s
Hospital and professor of surgery at the University of Louisville
School of Medicine. “Together with the University of Louisville,
Kosair Children’s Hospital is committed to helping shepherd
pediatric cardiology through this exciting stage of growth and
expansion — to save hearts of more young patients.”
Lee has no doubt that as Kosair Children’s Hospital continues
to grow, it will continue its legacy of personal care.
“As medicine has advanced and operating rooms have moved,
there are staff members who have been there the whole time,” she
said. “There are so many people who have been through this with
us from the beginning. They truly are our family.”
Once a month, for example, Annie visits Kosair Children’s
Hospital for treatment to help her immune system. Each month,
she announces her arrival and excitedly roams the halls in her
“None of our children think it’s a big scary place,” Lee said.
“Annie thinks it’s the biggest treat in the world. She is treated like
a queen.”
The Johnson family also is part of Brave Hearts, a support
group of local families united by their children’s fight for life after
being born with complex congenital heart defects that required
surgery. As a team, supported by the Children’s Hospital
Foundation, the Brave Hearts parents and children provide
support for other families.

The medical staff at Kosair Children’s Hospital has
long understood that infants’ lives are saved through early
detection of serious conditions. For the past two years,
clinicians in the nurseries at Norton Hospital and Norton
Suburban Hospital have been screening all newborns for
congenital heart disease using pulse oximetry, a simple,
low-cost and noninvasive test.
If congenital heart disease is not detected shortly after
birth, the results can be devastating. Fortunately, through
the Congenital Heart Center at Kosair Children’s Hospital,
a dedicated team of expert cardiovascular surgeons and
cardiologists can provide exceptional care for infants
diagnosed with congenital heart defects, which are often
life-threatening and require treatment within the first year
of life.
Thanks to Kentucky Senate Bill 125, clinicians
throughout Kentucky will soon be using the simple but
critical pulse oximetry test to help save the lives of more
newborns. During a celebration at Kosair Children’s
Hospital, Gov. Steve Beshear signed the new law
requiring the screening of all newborns. The bill was
sought by the American Heart Association and the
Kentucky Department for Public Health.
“Every baby deserves a healthy start to life,”
Gov. Beshear said. “This measure builds on the success
of our newborn screening expansion and is a great step
forward for the health of Kentucky’s infants.”

hree-month-old Jase Poppke quietly looked around inside the large doughnut-shaped
computed tomography (CT) scanner, his tiny fingers wrapped around the thumb of Suzanne
Loew, lead CT technologist at Kosair Children’s Hospital. Seconds later, on the other side of
a glass window, Jase’s tiny heart appeared as an image on a computer screen. With the
click-and-drag of a mouse, the image grew larger and incredibly detailed.
The scanner uses a rapidly spinning X-ray tube inside the circular housing that takes
images of the body as it moves through the opening, or “doughnut hole.” CT scans are a
common diagnostic imaging tool used to examine everything from the head, heart and abdomen to the
spine, pelvis and even major blood vessels.
“CT imaging helps us make important diagnoses and provide important information to the physicians
taking care of our pediatric patients,” said Philip Dydynski, M.D., pediatric radiologist. Dr. Dydynski is the
new chief of pediatric radiology for Kosair Children’s Hospital and Kosair Children’s Medical Center –
Brownsboro. He leads Norton Healthcare’s team of 11 pediatric radiologists.
Jase’s CT scan was performed using a new piece of equipment called the Siemens 256-slice
SOMATOM Definition Flash CT scanner. It is the latest in a series of advancements aimed at reducing
radiation exposure to the hospital’s smallest patients. Kosair Children’s Hospital was the second freestanding children’s hospital in the United States to install this state-of-the-art technology.
The new scanner detects the size of the patient and adjusts the radiation level of the X-ray beams
accordingly, making diagnostic imaging tests even safer for children. Because these scans are sensitive
to movement, children often need to be sedated to remain still during the test. However, the new
scanner’s high speed allows for shorter tests, so children may not need sedation. Many tests can be
completed in just a few seconds.
“The end result is a radiation dose significantly less than CT machines from even a decade ago,”
Dr. Dydynski said. “The new CT is fast enough to scan the entire chest in between heartbeats with
great accuracy. This results in a decreased need for sedation, even in infants such as Jase.”
Because Jase did not need sedation, he was back in his mother’s arms in less than 15 minutes.
Pediatric cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons will review his images to determine what type of
surgery he will need to correct a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of Fallot.
“The more detailed images have made it easier to diagnose congenital
heart disease among other serious conditions,” Dr. Dydynski said.
The scanner at Kosair Children’s Hospital is housed in a room designed
specifically with children in mind. It is decorated with a soothing color
scheme and has an overhead “window” that looks out onto a serene outer
space scene. These help distract young children and ease their anxiety.
Reducing radiation exposure is a top priority for Norton Healthcare. The
new CT scanner and room design are part of several upgrades at Norton
Healthcare facilities that total more than $5 million to date. The X-ray
The Poppke family
room in the emergency department at Kosair Children’s Medical Center –
Brownsboro was updated with a digital X-ray that acquires and transfers
images in less time, reducing radiation exposure.
“This allows for faster turnaround and less wait time in the emergency room,” Dr. Dydynski said.
Other improvements slated for Kosair Children’s Hospital include upgrading a second digital
fluoroscopy room and adding additional portable digital X-ray units.
“The portable digital unit has been extremely well-received, especially by the emergency department
physicians and pediatric surgeons,” Dr. Dydynski said. “It is a tremendous benefit, especially in the
trauma setting, as physicians caring for the patient are able to see the X-rays instantly.”

The game features “Mo,” a good monster, who travels through a
land filled with pain-causers. Colored cards ask players to act, draw,
practice or talk about pain coping techniques in order to advance
through the game. “Distraction Drive” and the “Land of Stinking
Thinking” are two examples of places that players encounter along
the way.
“My favorite part about watching patients play the game is when
their eyes light up and smiles appear on their faces as they enjoy
the playful aspects of the game, while at the same time learning
very valuable coping skills,” Dr. Carter said.
Milayzia had an opportunity to play the game with Dr. Carter.
“My favorite part was watching Dr. Carter act out what could
happen when I don’t use belly breathing to help calm me down,”
she said. “He threw a fit. It was hilarious!”
Milayzia said the game helps her relax.
“For a minute, I feel like a normal kid again,” she said. “I think any
kid who has pain would enjoy playing this game. It is a good way to
take your mind off what is going on.”
“Milayzia readily began to use the coping language and strategies
as she talked about her pain,” Dr. Carter said. “She began to focus
on functioning more than disability.”

For a minute, I feel like a
ome say laughter is the best medicine. For others, laughter can simply
help someone get through the day. For 9-year-old Milayzia Shouse,
laughter — and a game that chases “pain monsters” away — helps her enjoy
life until her doctors make the pain disappear.
Milayzia’s pain is attributed to a condition called tethered cord syndrome,
which will require spinal surgery. She has visited Kosair Children’s Hospital
several times in search of help for excruciating pain in her legs. During many
tests and visits, caregivers searched for ways to help her manage her pain in a
way that medicine was not able to do. Milayzia began learning how to cope with
her pain through techniques such as “belly breathing” and “creative imagery”
thanks to the help of Bryan D. Carter, Ph.D., pediatric psychologist and director
of the Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Service for Kosair Children’s Hospital, and
his team of child psychologists and psychiatrists.
To help her practice her new coping skills and distract her
from pain for short periods of time, Milayzia was introduced to
a board game called Monster on the Move.
Monster on the Move, also known as the pain coping
game, was developed by Dr. Carter and Brooke Threlkeld,
Psy.D., Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio, to help kids
learn and actively practice pain coping techniques in a way
that helps them turn it into something fun. The game also
is a complementary therapy, which is based on the belief that care should
be provided for the whole person — body, mind and spirit. Complementary
therapies use the connection between a person’s mind, body and spirit to
enhance total well-being. Other related techniques may include meditation,
yoga and clinical biofeedback.
“The game indirectly engages kids in the process of learning coping
strategies for dealing with chronic pain while also respecting and validating their
pain and distress,” said Dr. Carter, who also is professor of pediatrics in the
Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of
Louisville School of Medicine.
Though Milayzia will be glad to have her tethered cord pain
addressed by a talented neurosurgeon, in the meantime she is
learning coping skills with the help of a special monster named Mo.

Teen back to favorite hobbies after burning hand
Dean Lavenson Photos
Devin O’Keefe
evin O’Keefe’s camping trip to Marshall County, Ky., last
December turned out to be quite different than previous
Boy Scout trips.
While sitting around a campfire — admittedly with one leg swung
over an armrest of a foldable chair — the 13-year-old fell out of his
chair when its front legs collapsed. His left hand broke his fall but
plunged into the fire pit. Although it had prevented his head from
falling into the fire, his hand was severely burned.
Devin got himself up and began to run for help but quickly
realized his coveralls were on fire. He did what he had been taught
— stop, drop and roll — and was able to extinguish the fire.
A local hospital told the O’Keefes that Devin needed advanced
burn care. He was transported to the Kosair Children’s Hospital
pediatric burn unit — the same place that treated the survivors of
the Carrollton, Ky., bus crash 25 years ago. The burn unit cares for
about 3,000 pediatric and adult patients each year.
Devin was treated for second- and third-degree thermal burns.
Thermal burns are caused by any external heat source, such as fire,
steam, hot liquid, or by direct contact with a hot object, such as a
hot oven rack or cooking pan, according to Mary E. Fallat, M.D.,
chief of surgical services, Kosair Children’s Hospital.
The more severe the burn, the more difficult it is to heal. Thirddegree burns are the most serious and involve all layers of the skin.
They cause permanent tissue damage and may affect fat, muscle
and even bone.
Two areas of Kosair Children’s Hospital care for children with
major burns: the “Just for Kids” Critical Care Center and the burn
unit. Both areas are fully equipped to manage traumatic injuries and
have specially trained nurses and physical therapists. Devin was
admitted to the “Just for Kids” Critical Care Center.
“His hand was basically a giant blister, even between his fingers,”
said his mother, Lisa O’Keefe.
During his 12-day hospital stay, Devin underwent two surgical
debridements, a procedure to remove dead, damaged or infected
“Debridement improves the healing potential of the remaining
healthy tissue and is an important part of the healing process for
burns,” said Dr. Fallat, who also is division chief, pediatric surgery,
University of Louisville School of Medicine.
Because so many layers of tissue are affected by burns, they
are very painful. Devin’s burn was particularly painful because of its
“Burns on the surface of the palm of the hand are very painful.
There are many nerve sensors in that part of the hand,” said
Janice Bickett, APRN, clinical coordinator of trauma services at
Kosair Children’s Hospital.
Many of these types of burns are grafted, meaning the damaged
areas are covered with healthy skin from another part of the patient’s
body. In Devin’s case, they opted for hydrofiber dressing, which
helps keep the wound moist while the skin heals.
“When deemed appropriate for the patient, hydrofiber dressing
can be very useful,” Bickett said. “It provides an opportunity for
increased pain control, as the dressing remains intact until the injury
is healed and peels off of the affected area. It also has the potential
to decrease length of stay in the hospital. For Devin, we achieved
excellent results — and didn’t have to graft him.”
Nine months after his injury, Devin is wearing a pressure glove
to help improve circulation and prevent scarring. Soon he can stop
wearing the glove, but the high school freshman is already back to
his favorite outdoor pastimes — hunting, fishing and, yes, camping
— although he enjoys the campfire a little differently now.
“I learned my lesson about how to sit properly in a chair,” he said.

Organization supports burn patients
Nineteen years ago, 40 members of the Kentucky Fire Sprinkler
Contractors Association (KFSCA) decided to do something for the
“Kosair Children’s Hospital’s pediatric burn unit seemed like
a perfect fit,” said Angela Underwood, event planner for the
association. “The entire focus of our industry is on minimizing death
and property loss with our technology. The pediatric burn unit holds
a special place with our members because it eases the suffering of
young fire victims.”
As a way of giving back to Kosair Children’s Hospital, the
organization began holding a golf scramble and silent auction to
raise funds for the pediatric burn unit.
The 19th annual KFSCA Foundation Golf Outing will be held
Oct. 7, 2013, at the Cardinal Club in Simpsonville, Ky. Since
its inception, this event has raised nearly $400,000 for various
organizations whose focus is fire prevention and safety.
You can get involved with the golf outing by participating,
becoming a sponsor or purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to
win an iPad Mini. Tickets are $5 each, and only 200 will be sold.
“We hope to have many attractive items up for bid this year at
our charity silent auction,” Underwood said.

(502) 223-5322.
or two years, Lindsay Sauer cared for babies in the Kosair Children’s
Hospital neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a special nursery
for premature infants and babies born with conditions requiring
advanced care or surgery.
“I came to the NICU straight from nursing school and plan on
staying there — I love it,” Sauer said.
While working in the NICU, Sauer had cared for dozens of babies
— singletons, twins and triplets. Little did this registered nurse know,
however, that her own babies — quadruplets — would be cared for
in that same NICU, which happens to be one of the largest in the
United States.
Knowing that my babies were being
given excellent care by the amazing
NICU staff helped ease my fears.
I’ve never met a group of people
who care so much for others. I get
emotional just thinking about how
great everyone was to us. We are so
very grateful.”
–Lindsay Sauer
“The hospital stay was long but absolutely worth it,” said Sauer,
who was cared for by Thomas N. Tabb, M.D., perinatologist with
Kosair Children’s Hospital Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists.
“Dr. Tabb checked on me almost every day and his positive, upbeat
attitude gave me the confidence to keep hanging on.”
“We’re so thankful for meeting with Dr. Tabb and cannot say
enough good things about this man and his nurses,” said new dad
Brandon Sauer. “We are a family of six now — such a crazy thing to
say. But six it is, and we’re in this together and have been since that
first day in Dr. Tabb’s office.”
Despite Lindsay Sauer’s experience working in the NICU, seeing
her own children in the unit’s tiny beds proved challenging.
“Having them in the NICU was definitely difficult,” she said. “It
gave me a different perspective on things. It’s nearly impossible
to explain how hard it is to leave your tiny newborn babies in the
hospital and go home.”
Sauer’s first night at home without the babies brought many tears.
“Nothing can make that separation easier,” she said. “But knowing
that my babies were being given excellent care by the amazing
NICU staff helped ease my fears. I’ve never met a group of people
who care so much for others. I get emotional just thinking about how
great everyone was to us. We are so very grateful.”
Sauer has headed back to work in the NICU with a new viewpoint
on what it’s like for families with babies in the hospital.
“I will be able to better relate to the parents of my patients since
I’ve been on the opposite side of care now,” she said.
–Stephanie Doyle
Nick Bonura Photo
“I could have never expected my kids to end up in the NICU, but
everything happens for a reason,” Sauer said. “Maybe they were
given to me because I have experience with premature babies.”
After six weeks on bed rest at Norton Hospital, Sauer’s babies
arrived prematurely via cesarean section. At 8:42 p.m. on Saturday,
March 9, Lucas George entered the world as the biggest Sauer
baby at 4 pounds, 4 ounces. He was followed by brothers Silas
Cole at 3 pounds, 13 ounces; and Maxwell Carter at 3 pounds,
14 ounces. Then the Sauer family welcomed little sister Avery
Catherine, the smallest of the babies at 2 pounds, 9 ounces.

need a boost, too
Getting on board with booster seat safety
National guidelines
children should ride in a
booster seat if they are:
8 years old
57 inches tall
80 pounds
our 7-year-old may pout over having
to sit in a booster seat in the car, but
doing so reduces the risk of injury if he or
she is involved in an accident, according
to the American Academy of Pediatrics
“Moving a child to a less restrictive
seat too soon can be a step backward
in terms of safety,” said Sharon Rengers,
R.N., supervisor of the Children’s Hospital
Foundation Office of Child Advocacy of
Kosair Children’s Hospital.
All children under age 8 should ride in
a booster seat until they reach 57 inches
tall or weigh more than 80 to 85 pounds.
At that time, an adult should check that the
car’s seat belt fits correctly, according to
the AAP.
An adult seat belt that does not fit a
child properly can actually cause injury
rather than prevent it because it doesn’t
fit over the strong parts of the child’s
body. If the shoulder strap touches the
neck or abdomen — as it often does
with seat-belted younger children — the
likelihood of serious injury from a collision
increases. A booster seat raises and
positions the child so the lap and shoulder
belts fit properly over the stronger parts of
a child’s body.
“The seatbelt cannot be one size fits
all,” Rengers said. “The belt that fits a
6-foot-2-inch, 220-pound man doesn’t fit a
52-inch-tall child.”
Kentucky state law is more lax than the
AAP’s recommendations, requiring children
40 to 50 inches tall and younger than 7
years old use a booster seat.
Advocates of more stringent booster
seat laws that match national guidelines
have been pushing for tougher laws —
and are planning to continue pushing.
Approximately 25 states, including Indiana
and Tennessee, have implemented stricter
booster seat laws.
“A bill was introduced last year in
the Kentucky legislature, but failed to
pass,” Rengers said. “If another bill is
introduced in January 2014, we will
support it and encourage parents to
contact their legislators and ask them to
protect Kentucky’s children. A new law will
decrease the number of severe injuries.”

Crane represents growth,
Streets around Kosair Children’s Hospital were closed for three
days in July to allow for the installation of a 15-story construction
crane. The crane is necessary for completing renovations to the
hospital that will include the addition of a new trauma elevator on the
Chestnut Street side of the building. This is the first phase of a $70
million renovation project that will improve the hospital’s neonatal
and pediatric intensive care units, upgrade pediatric cardiac surgery
operating rooms, revamp the main entrance and improve mobility
around the hospital.
Some high-profile guests helped more than 600 students at Greathouse/
Shryock Traditional Elementary School celebrate the completion of a
successful service learning project that raised more than $53,000 for
Kosair Children’s Hospital. In attendance was Jefferson County Public
Schools Superintendent Donna Hargens, Sen. Morgan McGarvey,
Bellarmine University men’s basketball coach Scott Davenport, Olympic
swimmer Caroline Burckle and Olympic silver medalist in judo
Grandmaster Jung Oh Hwang.
During the school’s four years of participation in the Children’s
Hospital Foundation’s Kids for Kids program, the students have raised
more than $165,000. Funds raised from this year’s project will go toward
the Wendy L. Novak Diabetes Care Center and the neonatal intensive care
unit through the Piggies for Preemies Program, sponsored by BB&T. This
year’s fundraising amount was the highest yet and put the school at the top
of the Jefferson County Public Schools system for overall charitable
fundraising for the 2012-2013 school year.
