EVERYDAY HERO / ROUNDS

Close to heart
Daniel Davis went from heart patient to
security officer at Children's Hospital of
Orange County.
THE BACKSTORY: I was 13 when
I had heart surgery at CHOC.
Eight years later, I returned as a
security officer, helping establish
a calm and safe environment.
I was born with a subaortic
membrane, which caused partial
blood flow blockage from the
left ventricle. This put stress on
my heart, and if left untreated, it
could've caused heart failure. I
had my first open-heart surgery
when I was three days old. I still
undergo biannual checkups with
cardiology staff at CHOC.

THE JOB: I escort patients and
families on campus to and from
the Ronald McDonald House.
I try to calm flustered parents
by sharing my story. Seeing
an example of the care CHOC
provides is comforting to them.
CAREER GOALS: I grew up in
Orange County and wanted
to return to CHOC for work
because it's so close to my
heart. I wanted to pursue a
career in the military, so a
security position was a first
step, but now I'm pursuing my
EMT certification and eventually
a career in nursing.
WATCH AND LEARN: I love
to observe the environment
and the teams working in the
Emergency Department. I am

constantly impressed by the
speed and efficiency of the ED
staff members, how they work
at such a high level and at such
a great speed. The ED is filled
with the unexpected, and it
keeps you on your toes. Since
it's so fast-paced, you have to be
ready for anything.
FREE TIME: I compete in
Spartan Races, an ultracompetitive obstacle course.
I never let my heart condition
or my past surgeries keep me
from reaching my goals. I love
being active and encouraging
my friends and colleagues to
pursue their physical fitness
goals as well.
