The team complied with the request of Eduardo, 61, and bought a non-alcoholic beer at the market near the health unit
The team at Hospital Santo Antônio, in Blumenau, Santa Catarina, responded to the request of a 61-year-old patient who had been hospitalized for 27 days with Covid-19: to have a cold beer. Accustomed to enjoying a dose of the drink at the end of the day, Eduardo Benke had his wish fulfilled.
With the approval of a nutritionist and a speech therapist, the team went to a market near the health unit and bought a non-alcoholic beer. Eduardo’s only request is for the drink to be very cold.
When enjoying the beer with the help of a health professional, the patient exclaimed in German: “This is very tasty”. The gesture drew laughter from all the collaborators. According to him, the act of taking the drink did not mean just love the product, but the pleasure of taking pleasure in the little things in life.
Eduardo was discharged on Tuesday (30th) after going through Covid’s ICU and inferno. He says he is happy to be able to go home and see the family again. He also said that he felt loved and, therefore, came back with more desire to live.
