Tue Mar 24, 2020, 07:25 PM

I'm an RN in San Francisco.

We are expecting hell this week, as the cases continue to climb, and our trajectory is looking very similar to that of Italy.

We are short on everything. We are short on regular masks for droplet precautions. We are short on N95 masks for high risk procedures. We are short on gloves, isolation gowns, isolation carts, hand sanitizer (not emergent as we can use soap & water). We have even received training on how to reuse our masks and get the biggest bang for our buck from ONE.

I will say this. . . I fucking HATE Donald J. Trump more than I have ever loathed anybody in my entire life. I have NO use for that ugly motherfucker or his goddamned grifter fucking family. I blame every goddamned moron in this country who voted for this stupid shit head.

I can no longer hold my mouth in order to be polite. THANKFULLY, I know maybe only one repig here, so I can say pretty much anything without offense, but for once I would LOVE to offend some asshole who voted for him.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I am SO fucking ANGRY!

Trump tie one hand behind their backs with no timely testing, no quarantining, no masks, no face shields, no gloves, no haz gear, no ventilators, no auxiliary hospital space.

7. I hear you.

Trump seems to be trying to leverage this situation to benefit himself and his election.

Who is it that said he would donate 9 million N95 masks? Tim Cook?? Didn't quite get that, but my question is, where did he get 9 million masks from? And why is it stockpiled?

California is being punished.

Well, if he lets us hold elections, we will vote him out. I read someplace that holding an election by mail would cost billions. So, I hope the Dems have made some kind of provision for that.

Thank you for your service.

8. I completely understand your anger and it is entirely justified.

I am so sorry for the position you are in and it fills me with rage that our healthcare professionals are being abandoned by the Federal government in their time of need. This should be a priority - as if it was wartime! All hands should be on deck to source and manufacture PPE and the Federal government should be coordinating it.

This is just bullshit! Please be careful, take care of yourself and try to take some time every day to focus on something that takes your mind off of all this, whether it's a walk outside, a good book, or a funny movie.

Thank you for the important work you are doing!

23. Hi with you being on the front,

Can you answer something that seems odd to me.

We are running out of supplies. The news says SF has 152 confirmed cases as of March 24, 2020.

Source
https://www.mercurynews.com/coronavirus-san-francisco-reports-21-new-covid-19-cases-152-total

Are you guys already packed before Corona hit? Are people just going down to er anyway? I mean what happened?

I don't get how in SF California these initial cases can cause such shortages so fast.

I get it if you don't know, but am hoping you can help me understand.

He is the epitome of evil, and I hope he and his entire vicious family are ripped from the White House soon. They deserve everything we can legally do to them.

Thank you for reminding us that there are good and hard-working helpers in the world who live and breathe the exact opposite of what the Pestilence-in-Chief wants us to believe. You work to benefit the greater good, and far too often, at your own peril. It is noticed and DEEPLY appreciated.

You're part of what America can still believe in and be inspired by.

31. Our trajectory, countrywide, is much, much worse than Italy. We will pass them this weekend

or early next week as far as number of confirmed cases.

We were ten days behind them, now we're only three days behind. They have recently had some success slowing the rate of increase, something like 13% to 15% increase per day. We're increasing at 30% to 40%+ per day.

We're going to pass China in total confirmed cases later this week, Thursday or Friday. (However, China may be lying.)

He's turning these daily briefs which should be informative, directive, and cautionary into political campaigning and it's so disgusting.

Here's the freak's new slogan...

The antithesis of:

"First do no harm." Or, paraphrasing: "...to do good, or to do no harm.Ē

He will get what is coming to him. I firmly believe that. I HAVE to believe as a coping mechanism.

over by sadistic republican on-purpose incompetence and treachery.

Where are the rapid-deployment airlifts? Where are the demands that airlines use their empty planes to ferry supplies while they're extorting for welfare? Where's the emptying of corporate and government stockpiles? Where's the coordinated government-business manufacturing drive? Where's the Pentagon, mobilizing people, materials, and logistics?

Republican government is doomed to punish and fail, every time.

It's telling that I feel relief when I hear Mike FUCKING Pence speak instead of DJT. He's horrible, but at least he seems to be taking this seriously. Trump is a smug, mugging imbecile trying to look serious on stage.

71. Perfectly Said!

I still cannot grasp how anyone outside his Neo Nazi base can support this utterly vile Creep.

75. My employer put me at risk. No PPE. Now I am at home with O2 sats around 90-92

between nebulizer treatments. Luckily, albuterol brings me back above 95. (Oh and before you ask, I do not have asthma or any other chronic immune condition/diabetes/heart disease and my normal oxygen saturation is 99-100) Luckily, I am physician so I know how run my own mini step down ICU at home. If my oxygen saturation gets below 90 and stays there I am going to the hospital. But I don't want to go to the hospital. I have seen first hand how understaffed hospitals are. How easy it is for a medical error to kill you (almost died twice in the past from medical error and I am a doctor).

My COVID result test will be back in another 2-3 days. And let me tell you, finding someone to test me was not easy. Because we live in the days of "Don't test, don't tell." If no one knows that their health care provider has COVID then it is business as usual for health care administrators who are thinking short term only---"What happens to my bonus if my profits/patient satisfaction slip this quarter?"--rather than remembering that health care providers are not disposable and it will be much easier to lose them to COVID 19 than to replace them.

I am trying to stay chipper for my family, but when my oxygen gets that low, I start thinking about the healthy people dying.

77. I don't know what I feel more strongly

Heartbreak at reading your post or anger and hatred for Trump and his ilk.

I feel for you and your colleagues, not only in SF but throughout the country. Being on the frontlines without the proper equipment to protect yourselves is nothing short of criminal.

I have no words that will offer you comfort or shelter. I feel helpless and can only hope against hope that you and health care workers across the country come through this without falling victim yourselves.

78. Thank you for your service.

I hope you do get to let off some of your anger on a Trump Humper - hopefully at the beginning of a shift when you have some energy for it, and the satisfaction can help carry you through another overly long day.

79. We put a contaminated mask in a bag, then reuse!!!

How utterly fu**ed up. Now they want us to reuse even more contaminated overlying surgical mask.

How can the inside of the mask be considered not contaminated with straps flitting about inside an already contaminated paper bag?

86. They're having us do the same thing!

I am scared to take it back out of bag even if it's been 'wiped down' first, because we know that the outside of mask was exposed to patient. . . . They told us to "dive into mask" to prevent self-contamination. . . .

80. Hello

RN I pray for your safety but also understand your frustration. I agree with you 100% about people who voted for Trump. I love how he lies and says we did not what was coming. They new for months and did nothing. I work for Ford and at least they are getting involved to produce medical equipment. You are a true HERO!!!! Lets us hope maybe American will remember the sacrifices of our medical people. Nurses are just as important as Doctors. Keep posting to lets us know you are ok.

81. 1000% with you

I canít stand to look at that fat fuck anymore. Turn off the TV as soon as his ass face is on. Iíve never hated anything in my life more then him and his followers. Canít imagine what you are going through each and everyday. You make us proud of what you do. No professional medical person should have to work in that unsafe environment. He created this disaster from his dismantling the CDC. He is surrounded by incompetence and ass kissers. Pat him on the back 100 times a day or you are fired. This is a nightmare that is unfolding in front of the world . God help us all.

82. I have no right to be as angry as you, but I am.

First, thank you. Iím one of the seniors who lives in Texas who Dan Patrick thinks are expendable, so I offer my thanks to anyone trying to help during this pandemic.

You have more of a right than I do to feel the way you describe because you are being immediately and personally affected. But I hate the SOB, too, and I want you to know that.

Imagine how different things could have been right now if we had Hillary at the helm?

Iím mad, not only for me and mine, but Iím mad for you and yours, as well. Iím mad that anyone is being put in a dangerous situation because of a stupid asshole who didnít act.

Take care of yourself. Godspeed. Hugs and protection. And gratitude.

84. I am not keeping silent about who caused this with anyone. I stay civil and quiet ...

but I get it out: its not Trump who caused the illness to be here, it is Trumps fault it will be so much disastrously worse than it needed to be. Its Trumps fault he wasted months without mounting any sort of sane response. He's still dragging his feet as the morgues over-fill in NYC.

Claiming Easter from from the Pandemic is pure lunacy.
