His colleagues at the hospital were enraged, whining that they didn't have an adequate supply of protective clothing or masks.

Kelly's sister Marya Patrice Sherron announced his death on Facebook on March 24. In her poignant post, Sherron said that her brother was the best person in the world.

THE DEVASTATING NEWS

She also said that Kelly's heart for other people is unrivaled and that he's the best big brother a sister could ask for. She guaranteed him that she would take care of their parents. Sherron continued:

"I love you, Brother. May you be wrapped in our Lord's bosom and covered by his ever-lasting love."

On March 18, Kelly texted Sherron with some mortifying news: He had tested positive for the coronavirus, as reported by The New York Times.

HE'S OKAY

In his text message, Kelly also said that he's on a ventilator in the intensive care unit. He told his sister he could text but not speak.

His last message for Sherron was: "I'm okay. Don't tell Mom and Dad. They'll worry." Sherron's subsequent texts to him went unanswered, and he was dead in less than a week.

One of the nurses revealed that the hospital had offered nurses one plastic protective gown for an entire shift.

COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED

According to The New York Times, Sherron said that her sibling's passing could have been prevented. She's angry on the grounds that he was healthy.

Kelly's colleagues at the hospital were angry, as well. Some of them took to their social media accounts to share that they didn't have a sufficient supply of protective clothing or masks.

One of the nurses revealed that the hospital had offered nurses one plastic protective gown for an entire shift. The normal protocol, however, required a change of gowns between interactions with infected patients.

As reported by the New York Post, another nurse said that Kelly didn't deserve his death and that the hospital should be held responsible for it.

Meanwhile, the hospital's spokesman firmly objected when reached about the claims they did not have the proper equipment and were not ensuring their staff.

In a statement about Kelly's demise, Mount Sinai said that they "are deeply saddened by the passing of a beloved member of our nursing staff."

The statement added that the "growing crisis has already devastated hundreds of families and turned our frontline professionals into true American heroes."
