Posted @withregram • @kellyinthecity This is Jennelle. She's the Charge Nurse responsible for a 54-bed medical-surgical unit at the biggest hospital in New Orleans, which has been hit tremendously hard by the pandemic. Her unit--as well as its 44-bed sister unit--houses all positive and suspected COVID-19 patients. Jennell also works at another facility on its COVID-19 floor when needed because they're short-staffed. In an effort to protect her two-year-old son and three-year-old daughter, she changes and disinfects everything before entering her home. "Most of my staff are new nurses, and the daily pressures and ever-changing information are very overwhelming," Jennell says, adding that she tries hard to be a positive role model for them.
Please help prevent our country's healthcare system from collapsing, and stay home when at all possible and practice social distancing when it's not, so that heroes like Jennell can bravely do their jobs and save American lives.
Thank you, Jennell, for your your courage, sacrifice and service. ♥️
(If you’re a medical professional on the COVID-19 front lines, please send your masked selfie to email@example.com with the subject line “SELFIE.” No DMs, please, because they’re not searchable and easily lost. The idea is that sharing these photos and stories will help to humanize the pandemic, illustrate the gravity of the situation, and encourage people to stay home when at all possible and practice social distancing to both stop the spread of COVID-19 and prevent our emergency rooms and ICUs from collapsing. We can’t force doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to turn away the sick; to face the impossible and the unthinkable. We need to allow them to do their incredibly admirable jobs. They are real-life heroes, putting themselves and their families at risk every day to save the lives of others, and now more than ever, they desperately need our help. ♥️) #stayhome .
