Respiratory Therapists are on the front lines of the Covid-19 fight! The Respiratory Therapist is being exposed just as much if not MORE than Doctors and Nurses. Respiratory Therapists (RT) are on average paid less than nurses, but have just as much responsibility and and more at risk of contracting the virus because they are placing breathing tubes, suctioning secretions from those breathing tubes, and the ones taking those tubes out of patients. We agree Doctors and Nurses deserve hazard pay, but the Respiratory Therapists should NOT be left out of this!!! We are considered essential and are risking our lives like the rest of the healthcare workers!
