Letter to the editor: Giving thanks to Porter’s staff

I was recently a patient at Porter Hospital.
I want to thank and praise all people working in an atmosphere of uncertainty due to COVID-19. The nurses were kind and attentive with problems and issues in each of their own homes. They are hands-on in the rooms so their risk is high, as is the risk for nurses’ aids and physicians. But all are willing to show up and I was treated professionally and compassionately. I cannot thank them enough. I pray for the safety of all who are stepping up in the midst of this dreadful pandemic.
Let’s support them in every possible way, for they are the heroic ones in this time of history in our country. It gives me hope that kindness prevails.
With deepest admiration and gratitude.
