@ghandzo and @GraceChrist share with @SWHPN audience about lessons learned in the early days of the AIDS crisis: We were on a “committee of the willing” but didn’t know what was happening. These young men, some identifying as gay, were dying from a rapidly life-threatening cancer
@GraceChrist shares that one of her favorite moments of change was when she & SW Lori Weiner held Medical Rounds presenting 20 pts as whole people, talking about their jobs, and explaining why they were a priority for #SocialWork — distress, pain, & other complex social issues
@ghandzo shares that a point of pride for him is that hospital #Chaplains were able to work with patients & families through complex psychosocial & spiritual issues of the epidemic even when the church struggled to be a welcoming place for the gay community at that time. #HAPC

1/10 It’s hard to shut my mind off in the face of #COVID19. As #AcuteCareSurgeons our day/night/weekend jobs taking care of #injured patients and #patients needing #EmergencySurgery for abdominal and soft tissue diseases do not dissipate.
2/10 Yet we are also experts in #CriticalCare and need to prepare to care for patients w/ #respiratoryfailure and #shock due to #COVID19. We are implementing #plans based on the little evidence that exists while trying to stay #safe, #healthy, and #resilient.
3/10 We step into the trauma bay as others threaten to shoot our patient (but police can protect us). We do operations where rHepC/HIV risk is high (but PEP can protect us). We don't shy away from blood, feces or dead flesh up to our eyeballs (but we have #PPE to protect us).
