“The nursing staff helped me overcome this, they deserve all the respect in the world.” This is what Gwendoline Gutierrez (28) from Lebbeke explains to our colleagues from the HLN, after having fought for weeks against the coronavirus in the AZ Sint-Blasius hospital in Dendermonde. She describes her hell and admiration for the doctors and nurses who helped her.
“It is this nursing staff who fed and gave me drink, combed my hair, washed and changed. They heard my screams because I missed my family all these weeks and they tried to cheer me up. They are the ones who have helped me through this and I am extremely grateful. “
