LaPorte Nurse Home from COVID-19 Epicenter

(LaPorte, IN) - A nurse from LaPorte is back from the front lines of COVID-19 in New York City.

Lynn Criggley spent six weeks at a hospital in the Big Apple. Criggley says she felt like a medic in a war zone with the hospital she was at;  being at twice its normal capacity and many people in advanced stages of the illness of dying.


Criggley tended to COVID-19 patients on dialysis because of how the virus impacts the kidneys.

Eventually, she said the survival rate began increasing as hospital staff became more knowledgeable on how to treat the virus.  Criggley said she managed to stay COVID-19 free and is now at home under a 14-day quarantine as a precaution.
