Nurse Ibrahim sometimes insisted on feeding her with his hands at times when she was very weak and he was very patient with her.

I would like to ask you to help me fulfill my mother's desire to honor the distinguished Nurse Ibrahim.

While my mother was in the adult intensive care unit, she was always complimenting Nurse Ibrahim. When I inquired about the reason, she often answered that he treated her just like his mother and addresses her as "My Mother," nothing more.

She always felt the honesty of his dealings with her and his respect for her while helping with the morning breakfast. He sometimes insisted on feeding her with his hands at times when she was very weak and he was very patient with her.

Also, he was very keen to abide by the rules of safety and infection control precautions. I had asked him more than once to allow me to enter my mother's room and help him in providing the food for her, but he told me that he is responsible for this task and the visitors are not allowed to enter the patient rooms for the purposes of preventing spread infection.

I felt that my mother was in good hands. The nurses in the intensive care unit did not only provide the usual nursing care, but they offered it with love and honesty as if the patients were their parents.

Ibrahim deserves to be honored because he is more than a nurse.
