Nurses change lives


A remarkable story of courage and compassion

5B is the inspirational story of everyday heroes, nurses and caregivers who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect and care for the patients of the first AIDS ward unit in the United States. 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of these nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983 at San Francisco General Hospital, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty. The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes, nurses and caregivers worthy of renewed recognition.

The documentary film 5B was proudly commissioned by Johnson & Johnson as part of their long-standing commitment to advocating for and supporting innovative nurses on the front lines who are caring for the most vulnerable, and transforming human health around the world. We believe their stories should be shared and their life-changing impact celebrated.
