Tributes pour in for Indian nurse at Cork University Hospital after accidental death

CORK: Tributes have been paid to a Cork University Hospital nurse who died in an accident. Mohiddeen Khan, a clinical nurse manager at Cork University Hospital, died on 18th in a tragic accident in his home country of India. Mohiddeen had completed his studies in Emergency Nursing in Cork and had been working in various hospitals ever since.

His wife and three young children are in Cork. Tributes started pouring in as soon as the news of his death came out. The Irish National Ambulance Service, University College Cork staff and UCC’s School of Nursing and Midwifery mourned his passing.

Described as a “true gentleman,” one fellow CUH staff member said “Always so kind, smiling and caring. Moh loved his job. A massive loss to ED CUH and no words could explain his family loss. May you Rest in Peace Moh.”

One colleague said: “No matter how crazy it was in ED even in the wee hours, he was so kind and gracious. Softly spoken and a lovely colleague. Take care of each other in this hard time, lots of love and hugs to you all.”

Another said: “One of the most wonderfully kind people I have ever worked with. A brilliant nurse, manager and father. Such a tragedy for his family. Rest in peace Moh.”

Former patients who had received Mohiddeen’s care also came to pay their respects after learning of his demise.

Emergency physician Dr. Chris Luke paid his respects to the nurse, saying Mohideen was “one of the most gracious, good-natured and kindly nurses.” He said: “I was profoundly saddened to learn of the accidental death yesterday, in his native India, of Mohideen Khan… it has been my privilege to work with in my 40 years in medicine.”
