CLEVELAND — As the world adjusts to a new normal amid the coronavirus pandemic; doctors, nurses and caregivers are working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of others. Often times those working on the front-lines, aren't shown the appreciation they deserve, but one patient made sure that wasn't the case.
A patient recovering from coronavirus left a heartfelt message for the caregivers at the Cleveland Clinic before being discharged.
While in the Intensive Care Unit, caregivers at the hospital often communicated with the patient via a glass door. So, when it was time to be discharged, the patient left behind a message of appreciation and gratitude:
"I watched you work hard to keep me and others alive unable to thank you for the time that you poured into me," the message read. "Although I will probably never get the chance to pour that same love and support into you, I want you to know that I think you all are rock stars."
The Cleveland Clinic took to social media Tuesday to share the touching message.
Read the full message below:
"This has been the most impactful window in my life. On days when I watched you work hard to keep me and others alive unable to thank you for the time that you poured into me; although I will probably never get the chance to pour that same love and support into you, I want you to know that I think you all are rock stars. I watched some of you have good nights and some bad nights but what was consistent every night was that you care for people.
Today I leave this ICU a changed person, hopefully for the better, not only because of your medical healing and God’s direction and guidance, but with the fact of knowing that there are such wonderful people dedicated to the care and concern of others.
God bless each of you."
