Nurse’s act of kindness shows compassion to COVID-19 patient

Her one beautiful act of kindness is bringing hope to those fighting the novel virus.

COVID-19 is incredibly isolating. Even doctors and nurses are forced to keep their distance. 

However, something was calling nurse practitioner Idara Inokon, who was also crowned Miss Nigeria USA in 2017, to a patient.

Her one beautiful act of kindness is bringing hope to those fighting the novel virus.

“She’s about my mothers age and I just kept thinking, ‘If this were my mom, how would I want someone to, you know, show compassion to her – particularly in this kind of instance,” Inokon said.

"She really just needed someone to be with her," she explained. 

Inokon said the patient kept saying she was hot and felt very uncomfortable. 

"She didn't have a fever, but she told me she felt like she was burning from the inside out," Inokon. 

She did what she could to make her feel better. 

"'She said, can you please fan me?,' so I started fanning her body."

Something so small turned into a beautiful moment.
