Jamaican-born nurse was part of medical personnel who treated America’s first Ebola Patient (Video)

Nursing can be a very demanding profession, both physically and psychologically. 

It is also generally considered to be one of the most dangerous professions. 

 Jamaican-born nurse Sydia Rose was among the medical personnel who who treated Thomas Duncan, the first Ebola case in the US. 

She broke down in tears after receiving the not so pleasant news that she would be treating an Ebola patient but didn’t allow the fear to take control. 

Thomas Duncan sadly died on October 8.

Two health workers who also treated Mr Duncan contracted the deadly Ebola virus but have since recovered.

During a recently aired interview on ‘CBS 60-minutes,’ Sydia Rose described some of the courageous efforts displayed by medical personnel in their attempt to keep Mr Duncan alive.

Nursing has been voted the most honest and ethical profession for 12 years in a row according to Gallup surveys. I am honored and proud of these nurses at Dallas Health and I love my profession.
