According to her son Kwame Ocran, his mum died last Saturday. The deceased was reportedly concerned about the lack of coronavirus precautions and testing while working at the Jacobi Medical Center.
“She had concerns, especially with working with patients and other staff and how long it was taking to be tested,” Kwame told the New York Post.
“Without those tests being administered, there’s no way of knowing if she was working with someone who had it or not.
“She complained and was concerned about the precautions being taken,” he added.
Kwame explained that his mother became ill with mild symptoms about two weeks ago but still showed up for her nursing shift at Jacobi.
According to him, the hospital subsequently sent her home without conducting any test on her.
He said his mother was later admitted to Lincoln Medical Center but she passed on after two days.
