Angel is an ER nurse who says she is on the team that practically greets COVID at the front door. She is sharing her story and her picture because she wants people to put names with the faces of the brave healthcare workers on the front line. She says:

My name is Angel and I am a registered nurse who has been practicing just shy of one year.

My specialty is ER/trauma nursing where we basically greet COVID at the front door. Though we don’t know whether or not our patients are positive or not at the time of their treatment, we treat everyone as if they are infected and don full PPE (based on whatever supplies we have available) to test and treat and either discharge or admit.

I fight on the front & last line of the #coronavirus pandemic alongside hundreds of thousands of healthcare workers, public safety, and support staff. We can’t take care of you, your family, or your loved ones without protecting ourselves with PPE.

If you’re a healthcare provider, post your COVID19 fighting face with your name and job title so the public, government, and society have faces to put with the people that are directly being harmed by those not social distancing and not providing us with adequate #PPE. ⁣ ⁣ Fellow healthcare workers: ⁣ Copy & paste this post. ⁣ Use the hashtag #COVID19fighter⁣ ⁣ Tag your healthcare/nurse/doctor/RT/lab tech/PT/OT/ST/MA/CNA/radiology tech/sonographer/NP/medical friends and make this thing GO VIRAL just like the virus we are FIGHTING!⁣ Challenge created by @pagethepa I’m challenging @brianaleigh_23 #COVID19fighter #motivation #futurenurse #nursingstudent #hbcunurses #melanininmedicine #womeninmedicine #rnbsn #rn #bsn #blacknursesmatter #nurseblogger #minoritiesinmedicine #nursesofinstagram #nursingislife #newnursegrad #newnurse #graduate #blacknursesrock #blackandelegantnurses #thernsistas #blacknurse #ernurse
