Kind doctor run emergency department with a patient's sleeping baby on his shoulder

An Accident and Emergency, A&E, doctor who's specially gifted with putting distressed babies to sleep, ended up spending most of his shift with one on his shoulder.

Dr Muir Wallace saved the day, when a sick mum who could hardly take care of her baby came into his emergency department at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand.

She needed someone to help pacify her baby, but after failed attempts by several patients and staff, Dr Wallace stepped up to the task and in no time, the baby settled straight away in his arms.  The doctor ended up multitasking for one hour while cuddling the sleeping child.

Waikato hospital posted a photo Dr Wallace and the baby on social media, adding: ‘This is a bit different to my usual posts but felt I had to share.
‘The older of the two featured in this picture is Muir – one of our ED consultants. ‘The little guy was here with his mum and badly needed a snooze. Sadly his mum was unwell and needed some tests. ‘I believe several people tried but Muir was the only one able to settle him. ‘So for about an hour the other day our consultant in charge (of the entire ED) was most definitely multi-tasking. Just an example of the small kindnesses that happen everyday that often go unnoticed. Thanks to mum for giving permission to post this – I hope you are soon feeling much better – Mike.’
