What Is 'Code Happy'?

Newburyport, MA – On May 14, Anna Jaques Hospital (AJH) celebrated the discharge of John Sullivan who was one of our first COVID-19 patients admitted to the hospital. Thirty-five days later, it was an honor to stand with his family and friends and cheer him on as he left AJH.

When a patient consents, "Code Happy" is called to invite the entire organization to cheer on a COVID-19 patient upon discharge.
