Visiting a patient at Stony Brook University Hospital, oncology nurse Maggie Knight noticed the man seemed down. She figured a date night would make him feel more at home, and from there an idea was born. She and other nurses and staff surprise cancer patients with romantic dinners with their significant others. They set up music, decorations, and order food from the couple’s favorite restaurant. A “do not disturb” sign on the door ensures they get some privacy for an hour or two while they enjoy the alone time, according to ABC 7.
