#GoodNews: Hospital Staff Gives Elderly Patients a “Date Night”

A couple who’s been married for 63 years are both being treated for COVID at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Illinois, but the nurses are looking out for them. Frank and Masako “Terry” Martinez are being treated in separate areas of the hospital, but they got special treatment from nurses to get them together for the evening.

When a family member mentioned the Martinezes are typically inseparable and very dependent on each other, their nurses, Kim and Hannah, came up with a plan. Frank (92) and Terry (86) were treated to a special “dinner date” night where they got to see each other, eat together and hold hands for the evening.
