31 year-old Chantelle Diabate braved the snow and freezing temperatures and walked nearly two miles to get to her patients at the Hebrew Home, a nursing home in the Bronx.
“At the time I just felt that I knew that nobody was really going to come in so I tried to do my best to get there,” Diabate told ABC News. “At some point you’re going to have to depend on somebody. We all need each other. I treat my patients well because I treat them like family.”
Diabate was the only nurse who reported to work, said David Pomeranz, a director at the nursing home. She ended up working a double shift.
