Man Makes 1 Final Request To Nurse Before Passing, Within 1 Hour She Realizes Her Grave Mistake

Imagine you’re a nurse that’s making the rounds on your hospital shift. As soon as you show up for work, the previous nurse on duty lets you know that a male patient is probably not going to make it through the night. You immediately go to his room to check up on him, and that’s when he asks you to grant him one last wish. That’s exactly what happened to RN Sandra Clarke. She’s a bedside nurse at Peace Health Sacred Heart Hospital in Eugene, Oregon, and one night after she clocked in, she was alerted to the fact that an elderly gentleman would need some extra special attention. She still feels terribly guilty for not giving him what he asked for.

Doctors patch people up and put them on the road to wellness, but it’s actually the nurses who take care of all those people while they recover. Hardworking nurses are the unsung superheroes of our world, but they’re still human and not perfect. Sandra’s patient knew that he wouldn’t make it to see the next sunrise, and he had built up enough trust with her to request one last thing before he moved on to the afterlife. She promised to come back and do as he asked right after she was finished making her rounds over the next hour.

Sandra knew how important this was to him, and planned to spend the rest of the night with him. She was true to her word and returned to his room as soon as she could, but sadly it was already too late. The position she found him in was hauntingly poignant in its sincerity. To this day, it’s a sight she’ll never be able to erase from her memory. Watch the video below to hear more about this heartbreaking, yet touching story, and find out what the gentleman wanted her to do before he left this world.
