Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare sector, and the ongoing pandemic has brought them to the front-line, showing how relentlessly they work, they win… and sometimes, unfortunately, they lose the battle.
Today is International Nurse Day, and we pay Tribute and show Gratitude to these healthcare warriors who have been the family for patients for decades now. Covid-19 took a toll on them, and we have lost many such warriors in the past one year.
Paying Tribute to the Nursing Warriors, We Lost to Covid-19
Ravinder Kaur, 55, from the capital city of India, who worked in a COVID-19 ward tested positive last month and was under home isolation. But she unfortunately couldn’t recover and we lost her to this deadly virus. 34-year-old Indhra, who was working as a staff nurse at the Chennai Rajiv Gandhi Government Hospital, also succumbed to Covid-19 infection early this month. 52-year-old Prema of Vellore caught the fever while she was working as a nurse at the Vellore Government Hospital. Prema was admitted to the same hospital where she had been working for 25 years. but her health deteriorated and we lost yet another warrior to Covid.Elizabeth Joseph, 45, from Kerala, working in New Delhi at LNJP succumbed to Covid-19 despite being working in the non-covid unit. She was working in the pediatric department of the hospital, which was a non-COVID treatment facility.
These stories of the nurses need to stay with us forever as the healthcare and humanity is indebted to them for eternity. Shedding their own anxiety and inconvenience, these brave-heart souls were busy nursing the world to a good health. Especially during this pandemic, the roles of nurses have changed with great responsibilities and with a lot of challenges. But they have been silent warriors saving us without fearing for their own lives.
