Angelina Ramsay recently developed a cough and suspected she may have contracted COVID-19. She explained that the thought of having COVID-19 while pregnant at 35 weeks with her second child was scary, but that upon her arrival at BSA Urgent Care Center, she immediately felt safe, comfortable and cared for.
“Everyone at the clinic, whether checking me in, taking my vitals or testing me for COVID, were just so sweet,” Angelina shared.
Daniel Kern, BSA Urgent Care Center Nurse Practitioner, helped care for Angelina during her visit.
“He took time out of his day to talk to me about my pregnancy, and he understood why I was nervous thinking I possibly had COVID,” Angelina stated.
Daniel, who had his second child in 2020, knew firsthand the anxiety related to having a baby during the pandemic. Fortunately, Angelina’s COVID-19 test was negative. After telling her the good news, Daniel asked if he could pray for her and her unborn child.
“He did the most amazing thing I've ever had a healthcare provider do,” Angelina said. “He asked if he could pray over me and my baby for continued health and a wonderful, safe delivery. Not only did I feel safe, but I also had the Lord’s protection with me and my baby. That really meant a lot.”
For Daniel, healthcare is more than just medicine.
“I want people to be impacted on a level that’s more than just healthcare; I want them to be impacted on a heart and soul level as well,” Daniel shared.
For Angelina, Daniel’s gesture of kindness made that kind of positive impact.
“I feel like everyone at BSA Urgent Care Center, especially Daniel, went above and beyond,” Angelina explained. “I want them all to know that they are appreciated.”
