Boston hospitals are low on critical supplies.
N95 masks are in short supply.
They’re supposed to be used until a seal is broken. Nurses and Providers are being asked to use them for an entire shift, if they can even get them at all.
My sister is an ICU nurse and they’re rationing like crazy. My wife is an L&D nurse-they’re cleaning masks and reusing them (who even knew that was a thing)?
People are needed urgently. Travelers are being offered $85/hour or more…
As stated above by others, some folks in hospitals are being sent home. Running a hospital is insanely expensive and during this time, many payers are not processing claims. More and more are popping up daily and letting their providers know this.
One Boston hospital has become a COVID center essentially. Granted, the hospital is an absolute dumpster fire and I wouldn’t send my worst enemy there, but they’re doing it.
