Kings Park Student Sophia Koshansky Problem Solves For ICU Patients

Young Entrepreneur Sophia Koshansky Helping St. Catherine of Siena ICU Patients

Smithtown, New York— St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center’s, ICU/CCU Manager, Lisa Koshansky, RN, was trying to think of a way to help her patients deal with post operative challenges, when her daughter Sophia took the initiative to solve the problem. Sophia a 13 year old student from Kings Park created “Happy Sacs” to hold the drains that are needed to reduce swelling after breast reconstruction surgery. “I can’t even imagine how hard it would be to get around with six drains, so I hand sewed appliqués, beads and buttons to alter common carpenter aprons for the patients, said Sophia.” Dr. Yoon-Schwartz, Administrative Director of Reconstructive Microsurgery at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center was so impressed she wrote Sophia a personal note of thanks. Proud mom Lisa stated, “Sophia just amazed me with her creativity and ability to problem solve. She had a lot of fun making the Happy Sacs.” Sophia hopes that helping the patients with their mobility, especially in the first days after surgery, will speed their recovery. “I want the patients to know that they are strong and nothing can stand in their way of being awesome”, said Sophia.
