This is an ICU Nurse in Michigan. Lindsey Graham insulted her and her colleagues today.
@McEllie4 @TheRickyDavila @DevinCow Wearing the same “protective” gear between patients increases the chance of cross contamination. It makes me furious that facilities, management & direct care staff (MDs, nurses, aides, etc) r working in dangerous settings due 2 lack of supplies: Dangerous 2 themselves & others.
@TheRickyDavila @DevinCow My daughter is an ICU Nurse. Today in Michigan they were given 15 basically (trash bags) and were told to wear them throughout the day regardless of patients who were or were not tested for #COVID19
They asked about cloth gowns, COO said they'd launder the plastic.
@TheRickyDavila Shared. This needs to be heard.
And you are amazing, ma’am - thank you for what you do.
@TheRickyDavila This is what breaks down medical staff,
Not the long hours, but the stress of lives in your hands and knowing you don’t have the personnel or equipment to do your job properly.
