In honor of nurses week (May 6th – 12th), we are highlighting health care workers from across the country.
Ladies and gentlemen allow me to introduce you to, Suzanne Girard RN!
Suzanne works in Pre Op Testing at St. Anthony Hospital! Working with a great organization call BayCare in Florida.
Suzanne shared, we just started our elective surgeries and we need to test non symptomatic patients before their surgeries. Changed our world because they could still have COVID 19 and our test are nasopharyngeal tests takes 3 days for results. We need to work ahead and on weekends We are just starting our journey to the unknown. We are starting to test between 4 Pre Op Rns 45-50 persons and draw they labs for their upcoming surgeries. Disinfecting between each pt and walking the test to the labs one at a time. Very fast past between 8am to 4:30pm. Trying to do the right thing and be safe in between patients.
On behalf of the BEE Daring Foundation, thank you for your hard work in keeping us safe!
