Mom's hospital (good news for once from the covid ICU floor)

My mom has been working the covid ICU floor. Yes, floor. They have over tripled the ICU bed space at her hospital for the covid patients. Other ICU/stroke/stepdown patients have all been moved to different areas of the hospital.

Yesterday they removed their first covid patient from a vent and they were stable enough to move to the acute care covid unit last night.

The hospital posted a video of all the staff for the unit (over 40 nurses, therapists, and the doctors) lining the halls as the woman was moved down the hall to the elevator to the other floor.

What a wonderful post and how awesome for hospital staff to be able to celebrate that. I’m sure the woman and everyone else had a smile on their face and tears in their eyes.

Your mom is a hero.

Great story. Thanks for sharing. Iím sure the staff felt it was as much a celebration of them and their hard work as it was for the recovering patient.

All our hospital workers are heroes.
