Above and Beyond Care

Story 139, by Anonymous
Country: United States.

My sister was in a car accident and was star flighted to the hospital. She had a tramatic brain injury and after 6 days in a coma, passed away. During her stay in the ICU there was a nurse who I found myself praying would be on duty each morning. Each morning, before visiting was to begin she would make sure my sisters gown was straightened, that her face was washed, her hair combed, and that she looked the best she could considering the circumstances. She even brought nail polish from home to touch up a broken nail. On the days she was not working it was easy to see the same care had not been taken and the effect that it had on my mom. Those little things were not part of her job but she found the time in her busy schedule to make a world of difference to us.
