Story by Visitor Staff
Besides taking care of the physical needs of COVID-19 patients, nurse Crystal Lubis has the privilege of virtually connecting patients to family members during some of their most intimate moments.
Lubis, who frequently attends Potomac Conference’s Capital Chinese church in Silver Spring, Md., is a bedside nurse in the adult intensive care unit at a hospital in suburban Maryland. A nurse for 12 years, she’s frequently on the dedicated COVID-19 ICU section.
During times when visiting is limited due to the pandemic, the hospital and staff like Lubis are finding creative ways to still keep sick family members connected to their patients. They use plaforms like Zoom and Facetime to connect family members to each other.
