At Sherman Health, we care for every family we serve. This even includes those that quack.
Today, Sherman employees worked together to save a mother duck and her ducklings. The family of five made its way into one of the healing gardens at the new Sherman Hospital and could not find an exit.
Employees immediately provided much-needed water to the ducks. Next, staff from security and engineering gathered the ducklings and placed them in the field by the geothermal lake. The mother duck was aware of her ducklings’ location the entire time, and greeted them immediately after the rescue mission.
No ducks were harmed in this process! Mother ducks return to their ducklings, even after human touch. However, this is only recommended in rescue situations.
