Report: Louisiana docs, nurses 'pay it forward' to medics in Oregon
LAFAYETTE - Staff of a hospital here sent pizza to a hospital in Oregon where the injured were treated after a campus shooting earlier this week.
The pizza was a "pay it forward" from Lafayette General Medical Center after the hospital was sent pizza from one in Texas as doctors and nurses in Lafayette treated people injured in a movie theater shooting earlier this year. The pizzas were sent from Waco, where emergency staff treated people hurt in a violent biker brawl this year, too. The sending of pizzas has become a tradition in the wake of violent responses, Newsweek reported Friday.
"It's really touching for the staff but its sad that different facilities keep paying it forward because it's a shame this keeps happening," said Daryl Cetnar, a spokesperson for the Louisiana hospital.
LGMC, as it is known in Acadiana, sent ten pizzas to Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, Oregon.
