“Fighting on the front lines against COVID-19”

“Tonight, I realized a patient was likely going to die within the next few minutes from complications of COVID-19. As I glanced at the 12 IV pumps running, including three maxed out pressors to support his blood pressure, I realized there was absolutely nothing I could do. I called for my charge nurse who FaceTimed his wife, handed me her personal cellphone into the airlock room … She asked me if he would be allowed a proper funeral. She asked if she could be there. And sadly, I had to say no.””
