Doctors Applaud Recovered COVID-19 Patients as They Leave the Hospital

These difficult times call for us to be positive and celebrate every life saved

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down and medical professionals have every right to celebrate when they’ve saved a life, don’t you think?

The hospital’s executive director, Michael Goldberg posted on social media images of doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers clapping and cheering as at least three patients were discharged after being treated for Coronavirus.

These people were released into the wild from the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York.

As you can imagine with chaos overtaking hospitals, the staff was glad to see them go!

Goldberg posted a video on Instagram and wrote, “We celebrate the wins @insidelij!” He added “A proper send off tonight for 3 people surviving #covid and going home.”

He also shared a photo of a cake featuring figurines of a doctor and nurse holding up a globe wearing a medical mask. “I am humbled every day when I see what is going on #insidelij,” Goldberg wrote.

“This crisis is not what any of us could have imagined we would find ourselves in when we went into healthcare—but it is exactly why we went into it. We are here to save lives, to fight for our community, and to give hope and support to those who need it most. Every experience you have had has prepared you for this battle. You are ready to win, and we will do so together! #thankshealthheroes #healthcareheroes”
