It’s me, the respiratory therapist and the bedside nurse gowning up together. Only 3 of us will do this to reduce the risk of exposure. Despite the layers of protective clothing between us she can see the concern in my eyes, and I see the fear in hers.

You have 1 ICU bed left. Three patients need it. A woman with two children is bleeding to death from complications of child birth, a young man has crashed his car and crushed his chest, and and ICU nurse can no longer breath on her own. Who do you choose?

I was on call last Saturday for ICU. Of the 13 consults I saw that night, all but one were as a result of alcohol or drug misuse. Trauma, withdrawal and overdoses. Albertans are suffering in an unprecedented way these days. We need more social supports. Not less.

Nearly cried in clinic today. A patient sweetly said "I'll be quick so you can give some of my minutes to someone else". Doling out minutes was never how I wanted to practice. Patient support for us is overwhelming. Let's keep fighting for public healthcare!
