COVID-19 Patient Goes Home

There is so much sadness and grim news surrounding COVID-19, here is something that will surely brighten your day. Late Thursday, the team on one of our COVID floors celebrated with Mr. Jenkins as he went home. He is the second patient who has recovered well enough to be discharged after being intubated and treated in one of our intensive care units. Two of the hospitalists who cared for Mr. Jenkins, Dr. Randall Shipley and Dr. Chinyelu Ofodile, transported him from the 8th floor down to our hospital’s main entrance where his excited wife was waiting to take him home. Congratulations, Mr. Jenkins! Stay well.
