The above image supposedly showing a doctor reacting to the death of an emergency room patient has prompted an outpouring of support and recognition for the amazing work of medical professionals.
“The man pictured was unable to save one of his patients,” the image’s poster, who also works as an emergency doctor, said. “Though this is a common occurrence in our field of work, the patients we lose are typically old, sick, or some combination of the two. The patient that died was 19 years old, and for him, it was one of those calls we get sometimes that just hits you. Within a few minutes, the doctor stepped back inside, holding his head high again.”
The image was uploaded to Facebook and then shared on Reddit where it has garnered thousands of comments. To all those lifesaving doctors, nurses and medical professionals out there – we salute you.
