Our procession moved slowly and steadily, pushing the heavy ICU bed like the current carrying an iceberg. We packed into small elevators and slipped through tight doorways. As a unit, we pushed hard going up ramps and pulled back going down ramps. We paused many times — always planned, always together — to rest and collect ourselves, drenched in sweat. The trip took about an hour each way, nearly three times as long as it normally takes.
