Title

Nurse preparing to care for 1st covid patient

Description

Registered Nurse at White River Junction VA hospital suiting up to care for the first patient admitted with covid-19 in march of 2020. Early in the pandemic we were overly cautious using doubled up gowns, gloves and masks. Not long after shortages in supply was experienced nationwide and we began reusing these items that were intended to be disposable.
