Earl Bailey, a Broward nurse who tested positive for the new coronavirus has died, according to his family. He was 56 and worked for a staffing company assigned to shifts at multiple hospitals, mostly Florida Medical Center in Lauderdale Lakes, according to his family.
Marcus a Facebook friend said: Another healthcare hero has fallen due to COVID 19 this morning, as a matter of fact, a super hero, a body builder, a man of God.
Earl Bailey was a nurse of over 20 years, one who took myself and couple other nurses to the gym for Free training 3 times a week before our nightshifts to encourage us to stay in shape.
One who after meds pass and break around 1 AM will get some of us with similar faith in a circle and will play some of his favorite worship songs, sermons and preach to us the gospel and salvation; one who when we order pizza , will refuse to eat it saying “I’m good, my wife packed me fish and yam”.
How do we loose such a strong physically and mentally invincible Nurse… This is unreal. Rest in perfect Peace Mr. Earl. You were a gift to the nursing field and to Humanity.
My prayers go to the family , friends and colleagues affected by this terrible loss.
