Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Another Powerful COVID Diary Written by a Colleague

Maybe I’m prejudiced, but I think ER docs are a special breed, and I have been fortunate to work with many brilliant ones. Jason Hill is a good example; smart, compassionate, quick to respond, and always willing to teach.

Buzzfeed just published his COVID diary – if you want to know what’s been going on in NYC ER’s (more specifically mine) for the last six weeks or so, this is a good place to start.

It’s been an honor to work with all of my colleagues responding to the pandemic. Docs, nurses, EMS, PAs, NPs, ERTs, respiratory therapists, radiology, security, nursing management, volunteers, and everyone who came from other areas of medicine and nursing to help. I am humbled by their strength.

I will forever mourn all of those we lost.
