National Nurses United Registered nurses held a candlelight vigil at Kaiser Fresno Medical Center to honor Sandra “Sandy” Oldfield, a longtime Kaiser nurse who died this week of COVID-19 after caring for an infected patient, announced the California Nurses Association (CNA) today.
“Sandy was one of the pioneer nurses of Kaiser Fresno Medical Center,” said Rizza Valero, RN, who worked alongside Oldfield in the telemetry unit. “She was a friend to everyone as she had an easy-going attitude. I will surely miss her Bible verses and positive vibes during huddle. Her kindness will be missed by all, especially her ‘tele’ family.”
