Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center on Saturday celebrated another miraculous discharge of a long-term COVID-19 patient.

Francine Shelton received an emotional and exhilarated ovation as she was discharged after a 43-day stay at Memorial, most of which was spent on a ventilator in the intensive care unit.

Nurses exclaimed that divine intervention and hard work contributed to Shelton’s recovery, which was additionally challenging due to preexisting conditions.

Respiratory therapists, nurses and other members of the Memorial team gathered as Shelton’s husband joyfully escorted her out to continue her recovery at home.
