'Reconsider what you're doing,' Duke ER nurse asks people as coronavirus cases mount
Ashley Wheeler, an emergency department nurse at Duke Regional Hospital, sounds desperate as the number of coronavirus patients in the hospital continues to rise.
rising numbers apparent and at least one of our local hospitalists as well. Here's Duke original E. R. Nurse. Actually, Wheeler's video blogged. Ah, perspective. You'll only see on WRL gonna make these videos that are really hard to sound, even keeled and calm, because that is part of our job in the ER is too be able to maintain our sensibilities when the situation gets heightened, because that is our normal for everything to be heightened and somewhat extreme, and we have to stay calm to function and be able to do our job. It's really difficult to work this hard every day and feel like nothing is going our way. We aren't making any headway. Things are just getting worse. I can only affect things here and in my own home. I really just want to implore everyone to reconsider what you're doing, what your family is doing, because this absolutely has to turn around. We can't continue at this face. You don't want to come see us here, I promise
