Allison Swendsen, who shared the photo, wrote: “In triage the other day, I heard a knock on the window… This was what I saw – This man knew he couldn’t come in but wanted to show some gratitude – I asked through the window if I could snap a picture and he nodded, he had tears pouring down his face.”

“I peeked out the door and asked him how his wife was – He said ‘great, she is going home today, you are all amazing’ I don’t know him, I don’t know his wife, but throughout the last thirteen years as a nurse, I realized, this is why we do it- times are tough but we make a difference. I love my team.”
