Two nurses awarded for helping married patients battling COVID-19

SALISBURY, Md. – Two Salisbury nurses were recently recognized for going above and beyond to help two married patients.

We’re told the husband and wife were both battling COVID-19 in the ICU, and when their family decided they had fought long enough, they decided to withdraw support to allow them to pass on. Katie and Michael then did something special – they called their family on a video call so they could see their loved ones and be with them. They also moved the wife’s bed into her husband’s room, put the beds next to each other with the side rails down, and joined their hands to allow the couple to be as one as they passed on.

TidalHealth says while death is sad in any case, a silver lining for this couple is that they were able to be together and they did not have to know life without their person.
