全球疫情状况严峻,尤其美国确诊及死亡率都飙升至第一,状况岌岌可危。

然而,就有一位美国重症监护室的护士上传了一段影片,她泪如雨下,哭诉她工作的医院不让她戴N95口罩,迫使她不得不为了个人的安全而选择辞职的视频,刷爆了境外的社交媒体推特。

根据《中国报》的整理报道,这件事并不仅仅只发生在这一个护士身上。多家美国地方媒体的报道显示,在过去一段时间里,不断有护士因为被医院拒绝给她们佩戴N95口罩而选择辞职,更有护士因为抨击医院的政策而被开除。

视频中,这位名叫Imaris Vera的护士哭诉说,她是医院重症监护室的一名护士,目前医院的重症监护室已经被改为了专门治疗新冠肺炎患者的病房,可她去上班的时候却发现护士们都没有佩戴口罩,不仅没有N95口罩,甚至连普通的医用外科口罩也没有。

I chose today… ⠀ & my family members who have pre-existing conditions that wouldn’t get a ventilator if they contracted #COVID19 from me ⠀ I had a different idea in mind when I got to my #ICU this morning; I expected to see ALL OF OUR #NURSES & STAFF wearing #N95 masks but … ⠀ Each ICU room had ‘make-shift’ ante-rooms attached to them created with plastic tarp & massive amounts of tape.. ⠀ A charge Nurse was passing out single N95 masks to nurses with a brown paper bag for them to store their mask in which was to be in inside their plastic ante-rooms & to – – … ⠀ I asked “well what if there’s possible contamination to that N95 mask..? What about my safety” ⠀ My manager told me “well our staff safety is our main priority right now … if we get enough masks, we may consider having staff wear surgical masks in the weeks to come..” ⠀ I replied, “But it’s Airborne… those surgical masks won’t protect us ..” ⠀ My manager then tells me “ we’ve kept up with the CDC & it is only when the COVID patient has any aerosol type treatments like a ventilator, nasal cannula, nebulizer etc that’s it’s airborne..otherwise it’s droplet ..” ⠀ I replied “& 90% of our patients are intubated, paralyzed, & positive for COVID.. people not even in the hospital environment are spreading it .. we have to assume everyone is infected..especially in the hospital environment, & ” ⠀ I then told her of nurses wearing a surgical droplet masks on their units & now intubated & fighting for their lives … ⠀ Tears were streaming down my face & fog in my glasses at this point.. ⠀ I thought to myself.. , ..? ⠀ I asked one last time pleading with tears in my eyes.. ⠀ “Can I please just wear … I understand we have a shortage but I have my OWN ” ⠀ My manager told me that they couldn’t allow me to wear it. ⠀ So I gave report, & left. ⠀ America is NOT prepared & Nurses are NOT safe. Plz DM me any telehealth jobs.

医院说这是因为没有足够的口罩所致,而且美国疾控中心的标准也只规定护士在做雾化治疗、上呼吸机或插管时才需要戴口罩。

于是她问医院能否自己佩戴N95口罩来上班,说自己有家人,有基础病,不想家人因为她被感染而被传染,可医院缺拒绝了她,所以她只能选择辞职。

“美国没有准备好应对这场疫情,护士们并不安全”,她在附在视频后的一段文字中写道。

天啊… 缺乏资源也不能这样对待国家重要的医疗防疫前线啊… 这真是太心酸了!
