Jewish Doctor, Black Nurse, And Asian Therapist Treats Coronavirus Patient Who Was Covered With Nazi Tattoos

qqqA Jewish doctor that is working for a hospital in California, USA, is viral on the internet right now after sharing an amazing story about their experience in treating a coronavirus patient despite having Nazi tattoos all over their body.

Not all heroes wear capes, some wear scrubs.

Dr. Taylor Nichols, who works at the Mercy San Juan Hospital, which is near Sacramento, USA, is one of the frontlines that are treating people with the coronavirus.

Also, California is one of the worst-hit states in the country.

The doctor made a bunch of tweets on Twitter, where they recalled a moment where they had to treat a patient covered with Nazi Tattoos.

The doctor said that the patient, who was solidly built and was older, was brought to the hospital after emergency responders looked him up to a CPAP machine in order to help him breathe.

The staff transferred the man to a gurney and at that point, they realized the man had a number of Nazi Tattoos on their body.

Sharing the story on Twitter, the doctor said:

His methamphetamine use over the years had taken its usual toll and his teeth were all but gone. The swastika stood out boldly on his chest. SS tattoos and other insignia that had previously been covered by his shirt were now obvious to the room.

The medical team was made up of a Jewish Physician, a black nurse, and a respiratory therapist from Asia.

They all noticed and saw the symbols.

The doctor also said that the patient was repeatedly telling them to don’t let him die.

The doctor told the patient that they were going to keep him alive as best as they could.

Despite all the feud in history, the doctors worked together and helped the patient increase his chances of survival.

Talking about the incident, Nichols added:

All while wearing masks, gowns, face shields, gloves. The moment perfectly captured what we are going though as healthcare workers as this pandemic accelerates. We exist in cycle of fear and isolation. Fear of getting sick on the front lines. Fear of bringing a virus home and exposing our families. Fear of the developing surge of patients. Fear of losing our colleagues. Fear of not having what we need to take care of patients. And isolation because we don’t want to be responsible for spreading the virus, knowing that we are surrounded by it on a daily basis. Isolation because no one else can truly understand this feeling, these fears, the toll of this work. But we soldier on.

The patient was already on high respiratory support and Nichols asked him if he would want to be intubated if it came to it.

The man with the tattoos said yes.

The doctor admitted that they were hesitant to carry out the procedure.

The man continued:

I see the SS tattoo and think about what he might think about having Jewish physician taking care of him now, or how much he would have cared about my life if the roles were reversed. For the first time, I recognize that I hesitated, ambivalent. The pandemic has worn on me, and my mantra isn’t having the same impact in the moment. All this time soldiering on against the headwinds, gladiators in the pit.

The doctor said that the incident made him realize a lot of things.

At one point, he also said that he felt like he was not okay.

After sharing his amazing story on social media, people supported him and praised him for treating the patient despite the bad history.

Such an amazing story to share with everyone.
