A video surfaced this week that in just one minute and 21 seconds shows exactly why nurses are the best.
Sure, nurses can do it all. But what stands out time and again — and what truly makes nurses so extraordinary — is how much they care.
That ability to care so deeply and be so invested in their patients is perfectly displayed in the video below. Check out this nurse’s reaction after the 17-year-old Texas girl, who was the nurse’s patient, surprises her by walking after being mysteriously paralyzed for 11 days.
The girl in the video, Bailey Murrill, told the New York Daily News that she and the unnamed nurse had bonded over their faith and other matters during her stay at Dallas’ Zale Lipshy University Hospital. Murrill said she wanted to think of a fun way to surprise her “favorite nurse” with the good news.
“She had brought me so much joy at a time I needed it that I decided to bring her some,” Murrill told the New York Daily News.
The look on the nurse’s face when Murrill stands to walk towards her is absolutely priceless and very moving. The nurse then hugs her patient and says how happy she is for her.
“See there, I told you,” says the nurse. “Just keep the faith.”
That’s why nurses are the best!
