Dr. Joe Holley comes on the show this week to talk about the hospital surge happening due to COVID-19 cases. He relates his experience in the ER in Memphis and talks about the situation on the street with EMS providers, too.
With the situation fast approaching a saturation point where patients may stop receiving optimal care due to bed and staff shortages, it is imperative all healthcare professionals and first responders work to educate the public on the necessity of the five Ws:
- Wash Hands
- Wear a Mask
- Watch Your Distance
We can also be part of the initiative to get people vaccinated by talking about the science behind the safety and efficacy of the vaccines coming on the market. We must set people’s fears at ease by answering their questions and understanding where they’re coming from so we can best counter misinformation.
