The pandemic pay is given to healthcare workers believed to have been negatively impacted by Covid19.  Many sectors have been given this pay that are not even in direct contact with patients.  As a primary care nurse with limited PPE available that we have to reuse, we are still working with patients and providing essential and urgent care!  Essential services still need to be done like suture and staple removal, injections and urgent office visits.  We have definitely been negatively affected by this. We are having to don and doff  PPE, disinfect everything that can possibly be contaminated, provide care to those in need, check in on the wellness of our high risks group and ensure they are still being cared for.  We are emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted and we risk ourselves and our families to continue to provide this care.  We deserve the pandemic pay as much as any other nurse and healthcare worker at risk! 

As primary care nurses our job is to help keep patients from going into acute care!  We contribute to the prevention of the spread Covid19 as frontline workers.  

Please help us get recognized for our efforts in controlling the devastating effects of Covid19!
