I work in a 16 beds ICU but since the COVID pandemic, we have added the step down unit as part of our COVID -ICU. It has been such a traumatic experience, caring for young and old population with or without medical co-morbidity.
So far our facility has been very good in providing PPEs, we also use PAPRs as well.
Anytime, i work into the unit to care for the COVID pts, i get this overwhelming anxiety anyways i pray to God each morning for protection.
Pls be safe everyone, we are truly heroes!!!!
