HIALEAH, Fla. – The healthcare community is mourning the death of another one of its heroes.
Nurse Danielle DiCenso worked her last shift at Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah just over two weeks ago.
Her husband, David DiCenso, told Local 10 News that she was tested for COVID-19 last month following growing concerns over exposure, but her results were inconclusive.
“She always puts people first before her,” he said. “She showed up for work one day and they didn’t have a mask for her.”
He explained that her symptoms slowly got worse, including coughing and fevers, but she put off going to the hospital.
