A pair of Nebraska sisters who hadn't seen each other in more than 50 years were reunited when one ended up as the other's medication aide as she was recovering from COVID-19. Bev Boro, a 53-year-old medication aide at a Nebraska rehab center and nursing home, was looking over her patient list when she recognized the name of Doris Crippen, the sister she'd been trying to locate for years. Crippen had been hospitalized at Nebraska Medicine for more than a month while recovering from COVID-19 and a broken arm from a fall. Boro used a white board to communicate with Crippen, who is hard of hearing, and they quickly confirmed they shared the same father. The two had been searching for one another for years and knew each other's names, but were never able to find contact information.
