The surge in hospitalizations for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) around the country has led many physicians and other health care workers to speak out. We created this post directly from the recent words of frontline health care workers and medical administrators in 19 states, with the sources linked to the first word or two of each quote. Their words reflect an unprecedented time for the US health care community in the midst of the pandemic.
“This level of death, it’s new. It’s different” (Nashville, Tennessee). “I have seen so many emergent intubations. We’re taking care of very, very sick patients and our patient load just keeps going up” (Omaha, Nebraska). “I’ve done more CPR and seen more people die in the last 2 weeks than I have in my entire career combined” (El Paso, Texas).
