"And it's the things that, you know, it's not part of the training and the things that you're taught but the things that come from your heart.

While she added: "I think that's what matters so much now, these acts of kindness to the patients you're looking after, that are in your care, that family members aren't able to be there, but you are going that extra mile and being there."
