An Idaho hospital’s show of respect for an organ donor has gone viral.
St. Luke’s Health System’s hospital in Meridian posted the emotional video to their Facebook page Thursday. It shows what hospital workers call the “Walk of Respect.”
Hospital employees line the halls as the patient is moved from the ICU to the operating room where he is then taken off life support.
In their post, the hospital says it’s a way to pay tribute to the patient’s incredible gift of life and support the family during the emotional time.
Be warned – you’ll need a tissue.
