Hope Was Sent at Midnight

Elizabeth Nguyen, On Lok RN
December, 2013

“I was working the NOC shift at Chinese Hospital when one night I felt like an angel sent to one of my assigned patients. He was an elderly man who had no family and did not want to burden his friends. He was admitted to rule out acute MI. He confided in me that he exaggerated his symptoms so that the hospital would keep him overnight. He was afraid of going home alone and no one to help him with his care. I was a recent hire as an on-call at On Lok and as able to provide him with valuable information about the PACE program. He was so grateful, kept thanking me and told me that he was praying all day for an answer to his health crisis and personal welfare. He said hope came at 12 midnight.”
