No matter where we turn these days, COVID-19 is impacting communities worldwide. The challenges brought by this pandemic have taken a significant toll on lives, our society, and economy. Luckily, we have heroes and frontline “soldiers” fighting to combat this coronavirus. I’m very glad we have the chance to speak with one of those ‘unsung heroes’ of today – Laura Bedell, RN.
Laura Bedell has been an ER and Critical Care Nurse in New York City for 42 years. She currently works at New York Presbyterian in Queens, now the second-hardest hit hospital in America. She is strong, thoughtful, and determined to help other people even if that means putting her life at risk. When asked why she decided to be a nurse, Laura said she “always felt like a nurse.”
In this interview, we talk about:
- Laura’s story
- Real-time situation in a hospital/emergency room
- COVID-19 testing
- Blood clotting abnormalities related to COVID-19
- Some misconceptions about the virus
- Healthcare workers preventive measures
- COVID-19 symptoms
