A YouTube video has emerged of nurses, doctors and medical staff working extra hours to treat a critically ill patient at Providence Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island.
According to the video, which has been viewed over 3 million times, a man in his 40s with a history of heart attacks was admitted to hospital on October 1st, but was taken to a different facility on October 3rd after suffering an attack.
The man, who has not been identified, suffered severe chest pain and had blood in his urine.
The hospital said the man had been transferred to the intensive care unit and that the hospital was not aware of any other patients at the hospital.
The video was posted on Wednesday and has since gone viral, with hundreds of comments.
One of the nurses said she was “so sick to my stomach” after the incident, which she described as “horrific” and “really weird”.
“I mean, it’s really weird to see these people doing this,” she told the Providence Journal.
The nurse added that her colleague, who is also a nurse, was the one who pulled the patient out of the ICU.
“She’s like, ‘I’m sorry we’re doing this, but I think this is what you’re going through’,” the nurse said.
“That’s what we do every day at work.
And she just didn’t understand.”
The video shows a nurse trying to help the man, while another nurse and a doctor take a look at the patient’s chest.
“I just want to get that man out of there,” the nurse says.
“We’re doing our best.”
However, the nurses and doctors do not respond to the man’s request for help.
Instead, they proceed to try to administer his intravenous fluids and do what they can to revive him.
In the end, the man is able to be discharged.
“It’s just like a miracle,” the woman said.
The woman said she believed the hospital’s “poor judgment” to have made the decision to keep the patient in the ICUs for longer than was necessary.
“I’m so sick to this stomach right now, I can’t even say this word,” she said.
“This is just so wrong.
It’s just really weird.”
