A Philippine General Hospital nurse took to social media to recount the “worst duty” of her 18-year nursing career.

According to her viral post on social media, pediatric nurse Glenn was pulled out to attend adult patients due to the shortage of nurses. There, she had a pregnant patient who was later on discovered to be a carrier of the coronavirus.

“Kagabi ang pinakaworst na duty ko on my entire 18 years of nursing career,” she described.
“May naging patient ako, pregnant .Yung asawa niya covid + din at bantay niya pero asymptomatic. Napaka restless niya hirap huminga nagtatae linalagnat nag uubo (dry cough) mahinang mahina ang katawan. Naka oxygen support siya at di maganda ang kondisyon,” she said.
“Tapos habang andon ako sa loob nagbibigay ng antibiotic kinatok ako ng kasama kong nurse malakas. Pagbukas ko ng pinto halos hatakin ako palabas para sabihin bilisan ko kasi positive na sya sa covid. At napawow na lang ako na 3 na ang patient ko handle na covid.”
“Since tapos na rin ako sa mga ginagawa ko sa kanya.Lumabas ako. Paglabas ko nagulat ako ng may nagsspray sa akin ng disinfectant. Bigla akong naiyak kasi yung feeling na ang dumi dumi mo at lalo kang natakot because nagtagal ka sa loob ng room ng patient kasi kailangan mo gawin lahat para sa pasyente sabi nila dont be a hero pero di kaya ng konsensiya ko na basta lang magpasyente at magbedside ng ganon ganon lang lalo at alam mo na di maayos ang kondisyon niya.”
“Tapos may sumisigaw pakiprepare ng bagong ppe magpapalit si mam. Nagmamadali kami at nagpalit uli ako ng PPE. Di ko mapigilan umiyak during duty sobrang nadepress ako.”

At some point, she also asked herself why she is risking her life for that patient. But she quickly realized that the pregnant patient needs to recover for her family.

“Sabi ko nga ano baga talaga ang ipinaglalaban ko at why am i so eager na inaasikaso ko mabuti ang pasyente ko.Bigla ako napaisip sabi ko sa kondisyon ng pasyente ko dapat siyang makasurvive at makarecover para sa pamilya niya para sa sarili niya higit sa lahat para sa ipinagbubuntis niya.”
“Despite sa nararamdaman kong takot para sa sarili ko mas nanaig sa akin na kailangan kong gawin yun kasi kailangan nyang gumaling at makarecover kasi bukod sa pasyente kong yun may dalawang buhay pako dapat isipin na mailigtas yung bata na nasa sinapupunan nya.Nakakalungkot isipin na nagsisimula pa lang sila mag asawa bumuo ng pamilya masisira lang dahil sa Covid.”

Here is nurse Glenn’s original Facebook post:

In the end, nurse Glenn shared that she is now casting all her worries to God.

“At nang umuwi ako sa dorm dumaan ako sa chapel at don tahimik ako nagdadasal na umiiyak ang sabi ko TINATAAS KO NA SAYO LORD ANG LAHAT IKAW NA PO BAHALA.”
