Often, medical staff play music for patients and hold their hands before death, since relatives cannot be with them due to the risk of coronavirus infection.

Doctors of one of the hospitals in the North West England region fulfilled the last wishes of a patient dying from coronavirus infection and brought him a pint of Guinness.

Honorary secretary of the Intensive Care Society of Great Britain, Dr Shondipon Laha, told reporters that the dying man wanted only one thing before his death – to drink the famous Irish stout.

“Over the weekend, we went to sort a pint of Guinness for him before he died,” the article says. 

Laha said that fulfilling the will of those dying from the coronavirus is not an isolated case. Often, medical staff play music for patients and hold their hands before death, since relatives cannot be with them due to the danger of coronavirus infection.

Doctors should “have to talk to families via phone, or FaceTime. Increasingly that’s about stopping treatment where you think a patient is going to die – and it’s very hard to have these conversations with families,” Laha said.

Occasionally, ICU staff suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, he said.

Sometimes “you drive to work and watch the people walking around and think, ‘What’s going on?’ It’s like two different worlds,” the doctor added.
