Jeff Baumbach Dies After Contracting COVID-19

Nurse Dies While Working at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton

Stockton, CA (March 31, 2020) – A nurse died on March 31 after contracting COVID-19. The man was an employee at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton.

Jeff Baumbach, 57, was a nurse for 30 years when he contracted the coronavirus. he developed a cough in mid-March, but attributed it to the dust from cleaning his home. He worked at St. Joseph’s Medical Center, but there were no known COVID-19 patients at the time. The hospital, however, lacked proper protective equipment. Nurses only wore masks when with patients. 

Baumbach and his wife, also a nurse, went to New York days later to visit their son. When he returned, St. Joseph’s Medical Center was preparing for coronavirus patients. He was told he was exposed and would be required to wear a mask at all times. 

He developed a fever a few days later. He and his wife both tested positive for COVID-19 and went into quarantine. He later went to the ER and was diagnosed with pneumonia and sent home. Five days later, he collapsed at home. He was taken to a hospital with severe lung damage. He died that day, March 31.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Jeff Baumbach.
