COVID-19 puts Cincinnati healthcare employees in ‘PTSD-like situation’

The doorways are all closed on 3C. Each client in the pulmonary device at St. Elizabeth-Edgewood Hospital has COVID-19.

Each and every working day and often into the night, Melissa Schumacher, the unit’s nurse manager, is texting, emailing, contacting nurses, even nurses whose normal work is schooling or high quality management or informatics, inquiring them to choose shifts so that, it’s possible, 3C can have a complete nurse staff members.

“Just about every working day is demanding. We never ever know how a lot staff members we’re likely to have. Simply because we have a ton of personnel get ill and have to be out,” she reported. “And a under no circumstances-ending listing of patients that need to arrive in.”
