Allina Health nurse uses poetry to honor health care workers comforting patients in final hours

[KSTP-TV News, November 25, 2020] More than 3,300 Minnesotans have died since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In their final moments, nurses and other health care workers have been there to hold their hands, with many loved ones unable to visit due to restrictions.

A poem written by an Allina Health nurse has now been shared hundreds of times on social media. It’s dedicated to all of those health care workers who have been with their patients as they die.

Erin Pommeranz describes the depths of the pandemic and the compassion of health care workers as they help loved ones say 'goodbye' over the phone.

National Public Radio also reported on Erin Pommeranz's poem.
