  • COVID-19 is taking a toll on all of us, but this is especially true for healthcare workers. They are risking their lives and the lives of their family members to help all of us. It’s pertinent that they receive emotional support during this time. In fact, all of us need access to mental health support now and even after the pandemic ends. If we don’t get in front of this suicide rates and substance abuse will only increase.

  • I am a Songwriter and a nurse myself and it was this nurse that inspired me to write this beautiful tribute song
    Frontline Staff Reality. I hope she gets to hear it.

  • Cuba has an antiviral drug that appears to be successful in treating the virus, currently in clinical trials in China. It’s one of a number of drugs the World Health Organisation is looking at to combat covid-19. With Cuba under tightened US blockade/sanctions, and with this current administration, politics seems more important than lives.

  • Shes saying there is miss management of patients and because of that she cant do anything for them. People are dying that dont need to be. She can only do so much. Yes, shes a warrior and a hero. But even heros have their limits.

  • Thank u to all of the healthcare workers, food service, grocery clerks. We’re trying to get supplies as quickly as possible to u. I’m the only one able to work in my family; sending $$ to 3 households and I don’t know when I’ll go home. I can’t risk infecting them. All of my conspiracy theories are out the window. Praying for us all.

  • Heroes? The medical workers I see in Longmont United Hospital, Longmont Colorado are no heroes. I see rude, obese, lazy, and ignorant. They come from a pool, (workforce), of troubled girls enrolled in a prison reform of sorts. Probation is what motivates them to enroll in medical field. (Created identity theft too). Yes, a lot of drop outs too. Don’t forget the illegal doca kaka. They are all told the dangers of working with and around the ill and contagious. From what I also see they live for the ‘National Calender’, The national calenders says it is pizza day! Nobody misses lunch. The national calenders says national obesity day means potluck. Seems like now it’s potluck everyday with lots of free food delivered by the people in real danger. In a way its potluck for me and many others that don’t know what their next meal will be or When. The medical workers at luh are a scam at this point of No Danger in longmont. They are not frontline they are buffet line and dance party line. At least that’s what I see. ‘I see’, is just my opinion don’t get your feelings hurt and lose sleep or god forbid lose your appetite. Medical workers at luh are selfish. Not everyone got a payday, Not everyone got food stamps, Not everyone Qualifies. I live on Zero income. Not a tax payer. I do not see any greedy medical workers Paying Forward any of the tons of food they get. I just see medical workers gorging and hoarding, posting dance party videos, casual Friday at work everyday. Obesity kills FYI. How about donating to others that are like myself? Selfpity, fake pity, unwarranted pity. Get over yourselves. Hypocrites. Medical workers have zero fear in going to work. They know they are in the safest place to be, and will enjoy multiple meals and snacks thru out shift. Overtime for many. $$$, do it for the Benjamins! Self called, so called, lmao heroes.

  • We can’t all stay inside until nobody dies anymore. The reality is that this virus has a death rate like that of the flu, and that it is inevitable that it will spread throughout the population. Also, 42% of all Covid deaths come from 0.6% of the population nursing home people. This nurse could just as easily be talking like this about a bad shift during flu season. Wake up, people, and realize there is an agenda behind this manufactured crisis, and it’s not your health.
