Simple Act of Kindness from Methodist Fremont Health Leadership Means so Much More, Nurses Say

Published: Feb. 1, 2021

Nurses have gotten a tough break over the last year. Working on the front lines to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic means a commitment to 12- to 16-hour work days and juggling multiple responsibilities while caring for people battling the deadly virus. The work takes a toll every day.

Add on the nearly 10 inches of snow Fremont received last Monday, and it equates to a pretty crappy way to start the week.

The snow-caked vehicles in the Methodist Fremont Health Hospital staff parking lot added what would have been another task for staff to complete before finally being able to return to their homes and families. But hospital President and CEO Brett Richmond singlehandedly cleared snow, making a path for his employees to return home safely without having to worry about working even more after their shift ended.
