Doctors, nurses, and medical workers globally are at the forefront of our fight against COVID-19. Health care professionals are spending every waking hour at the hospital treating patients even though there is a shortage of safety gear.
And, while they are risking their lives to save us, all we can do is be grateful for their services. Like, recently, a man in New Jersey used a placard to show his gratitude to hospital workers.
The man, who was not identified, held the sign up the window of Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey, to thank the medical staff for saving his wife’s life, reports the Metro.
Emergency room nurse Allison Swendsen took a picture of the man and shared it online:
The ER nurse said she heard a knock on the window and saw the man sobbing outside. The sentimental man told her that his wife was doing well. However, the hospital staff didn’t recognize him but they appreciated his message.
“I don’t know him, I don’t know his wife, but throughout the last 13 years as a nurse, I realized this is why we do it,” Allison wrote in her post.
Many people resonated with the man’s emotions and thanked medical workers for their selfless service:
Thank you for all you do & for risking your life every single day. It’s you nurses and doctors and volunteers and staff at the hospitals that are the true heroes. We can’t thank you enough for all you do ❤️

Thank you Allie for all you and the staff are doing! This warms my heart. I was in Morristown’s ER a few months ago and received excellent care. I don’t know if there is anything I can do for the staff but feel free to DM me
