Patrick Regg had been admitted to the hospital and wasn't going to be discharged in time to see his son turn 1 – that’s when his nurse stepped in to help.

During one of his daily check-ins with nurse Stephanie Nicholson, he mentioned he was sad about missing the festivities.

With the help of her supervisors, hospital officials said they were able to make arrangements for a "clinically supervised" birthday party on Patrick's floor so he could celebrate Wyatt’s birthday.
