VIDEO: COVID-19 patient goes home on his birthday; ‘Code Sunshine’ is the call

‘Code Sunshine’ is a welcome birthday gift: After being admitted for COVID-19 to Mercy Hospital South on his daughter’s birthday, April 2, Bill finally went home last week with his wife, Lynn – on his own 68th birthday. Bill, a COVID-19 patient who only wanted to provide his first name, spent three weeks at Mercy Hospital South, with a week on a ventilator and two weeks in intensive care. He was treated with convalescent plasma donated by someone recovered from COVID-19. 
Mercy South calls a ‘Code Sunshine’ to celebrate with COVID-19 patients as they leave the hospital. After Bill left through the lobby with Lynn to cheers from workers lining the halls, some of his nurses and therapists signed his shirt with their motto ‘Stayin’ Alive.’
