Nurses Make See-Through Mask for Expectant Dad
Any parents-to-be are anxious about welcoming newborns during the coronavirus pandemic, but Will and Jennifer McKendree were especially worried about whether he could fully be a part of his daughter’s birth. Will McKendree is deaf, and he reads lips and takes cues from hand and mouth movements to communicate. With all hospital staff members wearing face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Will had no way of understanding them. The staff members at Sentara Princess Anne Hospital in Virginia Beach didn’t want Will to be left out, so the nurses got to work creating a new face mask prototype. When the staff showed him their special masks, he was brought to tears. Thanks to them, Will was able to see what the staff was saying during the birth of the couple’s daughter, Cooper Lynn.
