His last breath

Viridiana Saenz, Bernard Karnath

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Dying alone in a hospital bed is not what I envision when I think about my own death. As a third-year medical student, I have the honor of serving as leader for No One Dies Alone at my medical institution. I want to share my story to inspire others to participate in vigils with one who is dying or to assist in the efforts to contact family.
