Chantelle normally works as an NP in the outpatient Liver Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, but during the COVID-19 surge, I along with many of my colleagues have been re-deployed to work on the inpatient floors to help care for patients. It is a steep learning curve, but the support and encouragement from other staff and patients alike are wonderful!

As an adult infectious disease specialist in Chicago, one would say that I’m at the “frontlines” of this SARS-CoV-2 crisis.
I really cannot remember ever being so busy in the hospital. Yet, we in our field are deeply frustrated not being able to offer safe and effective treatments to our patients suffering from COVID-19 infection.
Clearly, this is a very fascinating and challenging time in medicine and I’m hopeful that this current crisis paves the way to better health care in this country.
