About a month ago, the Hospice Chaplaincy Show booked Cassandra Brown to talk about compassion fatigue in healthcare. Since that time, a lot has happened and the world is dealing with a pandemic no one has seen before.
On today’s episode, Cassandra Brown talks about her experience with COVID-19 after her husband Nic became the first patient diagnosed with COVID-19 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. Nic was placed on full life support and was on a ventilator at one point. Through prayers and good medical care, Nic bounced back and left a heartwarming letter to the medical staff at Cleveland Clinic that went viral. She shares about that experience, her faith and the importance of self-care.
