Sue's Story

I cared for the first HIV patient we had. He was in ICU bed 6 and because the rooms for bed 6 and bed 7 were connected, we used the room for bed 7 to change. We had to gown up for the HIV isolation room, with shoe covers and the whole bit. I took care of him every time I was on because no one else wanted to. The curtain to the room was wide open, so it was like a fishbowl. When the patient's partner came to visit, they had no privacy; so, I finally closed the curtain to let them have some time together. Tearful. Close to my heart with a gay brother.
