The most saddening thing is taking your last breath and having no closed one around you and the same happened with a woman who was all alone when she was about to leave the world to rest in peace but no one from her family was around her at final moments.
Heart-Rending footage shows a woman is on her deathbed and A&E staff hold the dying woman’s hand to make sure she passes away with someone around her.
A junior doctor and lead nurse were with the woman as her life support machine is turned off, while NHS staff support her at Barnsley Hospital. It was shown on Channel 5’s Casualty 24/7 and the viewers left teary-eyed when junior doctor George Kay and a team of doctors tried to save the woman, who had gone into cardiac arrest.
Unfortunately, they had to turn off the patient’s life support machine and Dr. Kay and nurse Hannah Ryan decided to stay with her when she took her last breath. The woman had no one and she arrived at the hospital alone.
Speaking about the moment, nurse Ryan said: “As a nurse, we’re here to give everything we can to our patients and I think that’s all that was left for me to give that lady.”
“I wanted to be there as she passed away, which is why I personally stayed with her.”
“I put my uniform on and I’m Hannah the nurse, I’m not mom, or wife, or daughter and it’s when you take the uniform off again at night, that’s when you get to think of what you’ve gone through that day.”
Dr. Kay added: “You have to separate yourself from the job that you’re doing and the decision you have to make because otherwise that’s all affecting you, you can’t do your job properly, but I guess it must affect us all in some way.”
“But ultimately, you go out and you pick up the next card and see the next patient.”
The viewers were heartbroken for the woman but praised Dr. Kay and Nurse Ryan for their solicitude.
”How sad that lady had no relatives with her when she passed but at least the doctor and nurse were with her,” one wrote.
”The lady that died didn’t seem to have any family, it was nice the nurse held her hand as they switched off life support,” another said.
”That’s really sad that that lady has died. But how lovely and reassuring to see that a doctor and nurse were there, holding her hand until the end,” one said.
