Physicians and nurses at a Rome hospital spent New Year’s Eve like another day – battling with the coronavirus since they’ve been doing.
As gentle parties happened, few nurses appeared in the window of the ward, in the fireworks welcoming the new year.
It was a night as another night because it’s been for nearly a year.
The hospital was standard practice, but after the virus struck Italy, the first European country to be hit by the pandemic last February, it was soon become a hospital only for healing COVID-19.
There are 3 general medicine wards, one sub-intensive treatment device, and three ICUs most active with COVID-19 patients.
Here physicians and nurses are around 12-hour shifts and did not have much time to observe.
Nurses looked calm and busy as usual from the long corridor of this sub-intensive ward where many patients lie in bed in dim light, in rooms with 2 beds each.
In one of those ICUs, the employees were providing medications, checking lymph machines, filling in medical documents.
Vaccines are on their way, though it is going to take weeks to vaccinate the majority of the populace. Doctor Paolo Petrassi, the coordinator for night change, states mass vaccination is the only hope.
“My idea for the year, the very best fantasies I could inform myself and discuss with people that care about me, it is to escape this nightmare when you can,” Petrassi explained.
