We talk with an ICU doctor, traveling nurse, and chief nursing officer about this year of loss and struggle -- dealing with staffing and PPE shortages, working to understand and combat COVID-19 as more and more patients arrived, with so many succumbing. The new vaccines have brought hope -- but also concerns about complacency, given the spread of variants.

Air date: March 23, 2021

GUESTS:

  • Dr. Dawn Barclay - Medical Director of the Intensive Care Unit at Portsmouth Regional Hospital. 
  • Holly McCormack - Nurse administrator and interim. CEO of Cottage Hospital, a critical access hospital in the North Country. She has been a registered nurse for 26 years.
  • Tayla Trask - She has worked as a travelling nurse since the early days of the pandemic, caring for COVID-19 patients. Stationed since September at Massachusetts General Hospital, she has also worked in Brooklyn, New York and Lewes, Delaware. She started her career in New Hampshire at CMC and the Elliott Hospital.
