Coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket globally, death tolls have also been increasing, and it’s becoming clear that stopping the pandemic is going to be a long battle. With no vaccination in sight, people are riddled with uncertainty. More so, for medical workers, doctors, nurses, who are fighting on the front line, working long hours in hospitals. Apart from risking their lives, they also have to deal with the pain of so many patients losing their lives. Now, a video of an ICU nurse in New York is going viral on the Internet, and it shows her sobbing inconsolably as she narrates the reality of the Coronavirus situation.
D'neil Schmall took to her Facebook page to share a video recounting the horrifying details after a traumatic shift. In the video, she breaks down in tears and shared that she is tired of walking into a room, to find that her patient has died. As she sobs, she says, “I just feel there is so much anyone can take. I'm tired of walking into rooms, and your patients are dead. You just walk into a room, and there's a dead body there. I'm tired of calling families and telling them that news.”
She further shared the pain over her fellow nurses losing their lives while they battle COVID-19, taking care of others.
She asked for compassion and understanding from people in trying times like these. “I cried the whole way home, the driver was like, "Ma'am are you okay?”. I don't think people understand how stressful this job is. I was trained for anything in the world but this is so stressful. Everyone is trying hard, everyone is trying so hard. But we got so much to do. We are humans too,” she said.
