Nurse Shares What People Say Before Dying

Julie, a registered nurse from Los Angeles, California, has worked in a hospice and ICU for around 14 years. She has been using her expertise and knowledge to educate her 372,400 TikTok followers about death.

Her heart-warming comments as well as her love for her job have led to her videos going viral with people desperate to know about what to expect when family and friends pass away. She said: “I love educating patients and families about what to expect with hospice. I also really like giving the patient and family some comfort knowing we will be there to manage their symptoms.”

Julie explained that changes in breathing, changes in skin color, and fevers, just to name a few, are all normal stages. She then said, “There is something most people say before they die and it’s usually ‘I love you’ or they call out to their mom or dad — who have usually already died.”
