I work in one of the hardest hit hospitals in the province. What I have seen over the last year is devastating and instead of getting better it’s getting worse. Our patients are young, they are scared. Before putting them on breathing machines we are asking them to call their families to talk to them for potentially the last time. It’s heartbreaking. We are drowning and if it wasn’t for multiple transfers out of our hospital to other centres daily we would collapse.
I’m afraid what will happen when other centres can’t help us anymore. I’m afraid of seeing people needlessly dying because we do not have the resources to help them.
My colleagues and I are running on fumes, how long til til we completely burn out? Who will be left at the end of this?
