任何一个国家,医护人员都是冲在第一线,他们就是冲在前面战斗的士兵,他们需要上阵杀敌(病毒),可是这个时候不给他们戴口罩,不就如同让士兵不戴盔甲上阵打仗吗?

一名美国重症监护室的护士哭诉医院不让她戴N95口罩,为了她个人安全着想,不得不辞职,她哭诉的视频在网络上疯传,在境外的社交媒体推特上引起轰动。

最可怕的是,这不是单一个案,多家美国地方媒体的报道显示,在过去一段时间里,不断有护士因为被医院拒绝给她们佩戴N95口罩而选择辞职,更有护士因为抨击医院的政策而被开除。

视频中的护士名叫Imaris Vera,她是医院重症监护室的一名护士,而医院的ICU已经被改成专门治疗COVID-19病患的病房,可是她去上班时却没有人佩戴口罩,不止是没有N95,就连最基本的医用外科口罩也没有!

医院说这是因为没有足够的口罩所致,而且美国疾控中心的标准也只规定护士在做雾化治疗、上呼吸机或插管时才需要戴口罩。

她说她明白医院缺乏口罩供应,于是她问医院能否自备N95口罩来上班,她想要保护好自己,让自己更安全。

加上她的家人有基础病,并不想家人因为她被感染而被传染,可是没料到医院还是拒绝了她。

最终她只能选择辞职:“今天,我选择了我自己的生命”,“以及有基础病的家人。”

她认为美国没有准备好应对这场疫情:“护士们并不安全。”

I chose today… ⠀ & my family members who have pre-existing conditions that wouldn’t get a ventilator if they contracted #COVID19 from me ⠀ I had a different idea in mind when I got to my #ICU this morning; I expected to see ALL OF OUR #NURSES & STAFF wearing #N95 masks but … ⠀ Each ICU room had ‘make-shift’ ante-rooms attached to them created with plastic tarp & massive amounts of tape.. ⠀ A charge Nurse was passing out single N95 masks to nurses with a brown paper bag for them to store their mask in which was to be in inside their plastic ante-rooms & to – – … ⠀ I asked “well what if there’s possible contamination to that N95 mask..? What about my safety” ⠀ My manager told me “well our staff safety is our main priority right now … if we get enough masks, we may consider having staff wear surgical masks in the weeks to come..” ⠀ I replied, “But it’s Airborne… those surgical masks won’t protect us ..” ⠀ My manager then tells me “ we’ve kept up with the CDC & it is only when the COVID patient has any aerosol type treatments like a ventilator, nasal cannula, nebulizer etc that’s it’s airborne..otherwise it’s droplet ..” ⠀ I replied “& 90% of our patients are intubated, paralyzed, & positive for COVID.. people not even in the hospital environment are spreading it .. we have to assume everyone is infected..especially in the hospital environment, & ” ⠀ I then told her of nurses wearing a surgical droplet masks on their units & now intubated & fighting for their lives … ⠀ Tears were streaming down my face & fog in my glasses at this point.. ⠀ I thought to myself.. , ..? ⠀ I asked one last time pleading with tears in my eyes.. ⠀ “Can I please just wear … I understand we have a shortage but I have my OWN ” ⠀ My manager told me that they couldn’t allow me to wear it. ⠀ So I gave report, & left. ⠀ America is NOT prepared & Nurses are NOT safe. Plz DM me any telehealth jobs.
