Giving some relief to border health workers, a hospital in Abu Dhabi marked the birthday of a nurse who serves patients in the emergency department.
Anju Ambidas, who works as staff nurse at Medore Hospital, Abu Dhabi, was pleasantly surprised when management team comes with a cake. Amidst the ongoing efforts to spread Covid-19, She did not realize that Wednesday, April 29 was her birthday.
“I had no idea about what was happening. Frankly, it never occurred to me that it was my birthday. Normally, we have celebrations at the hospital by month end, so this came as a surprise. At home, we normally cut a cake and go out for dinner but we made no plans today as it is Covid-19. And since I am working in the emergency department, I had no chance to celebrate,” Anju said.
“Nowadays, our entire focus is on offering our support to fight the deadly virus. But today’s celebration truly surprised me. I thank everyone at Medeor Hospital for their wishes. It is going to be one of the most memorable birthday celebrations I ever had,” she added.
The nurse and medical staff attend to hundreds of patients daily at the hospital. And such an unexpected celebration has turned out to be a memorable one for Anju.
