Nurses want adequate PPE earlier in the treatment process, and not just when a confirmed case is receiving a respiratory treatment.
Which, as a parent, is a heartbreaking thing to hear, much less say.
Either way, things are very tense, and Kaiser (like many (all?) hospitals are in an extremely tough spot.
Kaiser was told earlier today that we would be publishing this and didn’t respond.
In fact, Cal OSHA has not substantively responded to my questions (other than to say they may have an answer for me by tomorrow) since I first started reaching out Sunday.
But what does it say about us, collectively as a society, when someone—just one ordinary person—is hand delivering small quantities of N95s to desperate nurses?
This is a crazy, unprecedented time.
Thank you again for reading this.
