Emperor Divers Awards Seventh Covid Diver Hero With Red Sea Liveaboard Trip
Emperor Divers has awarded its seventh – and penultimate – Covid Diver Hero with a Red Sea liveaboard trip. The latest hero nominated for going above and beyond the call of duty during the coronavirus pandemic is Susana Garcia from Madrid, Spain, who was nominated by her friend Jaime Callejon Bejarano.
As the heroine of each and every one of the patients and families who have passed through her hands during 20 years, not only during this pandemic, and I can not find a better way to thank her than for her being one of the lucky ones to enjoy with the Emperor Team one of her great passions.... diving, and... diving in the RED SEA! Thank you for this opportunity but it's SO difficult to say only in 200 words! Here goes:
Intensive Care Unit Nurse for 20 years, she treats patients in critical situations when medical and human treatment is vital. In the early moments of the pandemic, without enough protective equipment, all her unit risked their lives to give medical and humane treatment to the patients, reorganising their unit to attend to all the critical patients, working as a great TEAM.
They were taking care of critical patients, going home after their work, afraid of being infected themselves, afraid of seeing their families... but they never missed their work shift, their patients, working to find possible treatments, ALL TOGETHER.
Not only doing their job but giving affection to the patients, helping them to communicate with their families by video calls, even in the worst cases, holding the patient's hands in their last breath, so as they did not leave this world alone. All these patients’ families, unable to see their loved ones because of isolation, never stop appreciating.
Thank you for not leaving them alone.
Emperor has one more award to give away – with the final Covid Diver Hero set to win a liveaboard trip in the Maldives. Entries close on 5 June and the final winner will be announced on 14 June.
