Our founder Sharon Baker recently wrote a column for the Rome News-Tribune about the need for skilled healthcare workers in a pandemic like COVID-19. She writes:
The news is full of statistics about the expectation of a flood of new cases of COVID-19. The shortage of equipment is a major issue, but what about the shortage of healthcare providers? (EMS, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, maintenance, housekeeping, etc.) The CDC requirement for healthcare workers exposed to the novel coronavirus to be quarantined for 14 days will make our pool of workers even smaller.
