A longtime nurse at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital died this week due to complications from COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
The nurse worked in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
“Our Jackson Health System family is mourning the death of longtime Jackson nurse Araceli Buendia Ilagan, who recently died from complications of COVID-19,” the hospital said in a prepared statement. “Araceli dedicated nearly 33 years of her life treating some of our most critically ill patients.”
Aricely was reportedly at work on Tuesday before she died, taking care of critically ill patients.
