    So nice of all. Now that the panic is over how about continuing to help Healthcare workers like myself? Nurse burnout is real!!! I’ve personally worked in Healthcare for 40+ years! I’m in major burnout mode. I have no paid vacation, I do hospice through an agency. What I would give to have a couple of months to get my feet back under me. I feel like I’m getting close to major break down. It’s at least 10 more years till I can retire. But I’m so burned out i…. I wish someone would set up a program where burned out nurses could get a helping hand with bills and vacation for a while so they could recover a little.

    No one mentions the physical and verbal abuse we go through on a daily basis as nurses . Where is our justice where our voice. We went from heroes to zeros real quick everyone begging to help them and save them. I personally am being falsy acussed and the company throw me under the bus to safe there own name. Where is my saving. When there is proven evidence I did nothing wrong. Johnny depp I need ur lawyer to fight my deflammation case. But it won’t happen cause in reality yall see us a nothing
