U.S. Healthcare Worker Quotes

"We stayed at work for you. You stay at home for us."

“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).

St. Mary Medical Center

“I do this day in and day out and people are out there doing the wrong thing. People are out there in bars, restaurants, malls—it is crazy—it’s like we work, work, work, work, work and people don’t listen and then they end up in my ICU” (Houston, Texas).

“It is so disheartening and demoralizing to leave work and just not see it, to see people gathering and talking about their travel plans, to see people waiting in a line outside a bar to get in when you’re driving home after a horrible day. It’s so upsetting” (Columbia, Missouri).

“I’m terrified. It’s engulfing my entire waking moments” (Frederick, Maryland).

“We are depressed, disheartened and tired to the bone” (Johnson City, Tennessee).

“You see on social media people kind of mocking or saying it’s not very serious or comparing it to the flu but, you know, they don’t see what we see every day. They’re not holding the hands of dying people whose family can’t get to them” (Greensboro, North Carolina).
