Last year was a particularly tough year for healthcare professionals at the forefront of the pandemic.
This week we celebrated our dedication to nurses and their communities.
Orlando Oliveros’ passion for healthcare began with his son.
“He had a very premature birth. He had a hole in the heart, and he spent seven months in the hospital,” said Oliveros.
The nurse showed his son such caution and caution, and he knew he had to pay it in advance.
“I felt obliged to the community and what I believed in,” said Oliveros.
Currently, Oliveros is a registered nurse and works in the ICU of the Gulf Coast Medical Center.
He is at the forefront of the pandemic, which has led to tough decisions for his family.
“I have a slightly immunocompromised son at home,” said Oliveros. “We sent him to Grandpa and Grandma’s house with his brother, and we didn’t contact him for three months.”
“It was a roller coaster of emotions,” said Oliveros.
Judy Lamdas is a Gulf Coast Nursing Supervisor.
“After the horror sank, it was’what do we need to do to care for the patient?'” Randas said.
Judy Landas, who has worked for Lee Health for 25 years, says that the stress and tension of the pandemic only strengthened her determination to serve her community.
“I never thought of leaving. If anything, I wanted to see what I could do more,” Randas said.
“He was born during a swine flu pandemic, and why don’t I show up at work when those nurses show up at work?” Oliveros said.
For Oliveros, thanking a nurse is more than a day or a week, and that is his mission.
Showing gratitude to the nurses does not mean that you have to buy them pizza, coffee or other gifts. He says it’s enough to get hello and be remembered as the one who took care of your loved one.
