So you have to determine your odds of recovery. Where are you setting (and what do you recommend as) a method of determining where a nurse should set their go/no go point? And where do you go to for a trusted data source?

While the risk factor may be high, someone has to take care of these patients. I fully understand every single nurses or healthcare professionals concern and I would not chastise someone for refusing to work with Covid patients. It is really hard to get good trusted data information regarding covid right now because everything is relatively new, however there are several Facebook groups of nurses that are taking care of Covid patients and I am using a lot of that info with what they are seeing and experiencing. If anyone here is a nurse and wants an invite to the Facebook groups, I would be happy to invite you, just PM me and prove you are a nurse please!

My facility, currently will let you wear your own respirator while in the "clean" areas of the hospital. But, when engaged in patient care in the "dirty areas", we are required to use the hospital supplied N95 masks. Nurses are wearing them in patient care area anyway. Don't know if that will continue or not. The PPE supply is holding up, but still rationed.

You can make some pretty serious cash. I think they are now hiring down at Cobo arena (TCF Center), a converted overflow hospital. I have heard some numbers thrown around, but it is a bit hard to get details or separate rumor from fact. If you are accepting an assignment here and have any ICU experience, you are going to work in an ICU. That is were the biggest needs are right now.

The risk factor? I believe that all nurses, in my position are going to get sick.
Great info, thanks! If you want invited to COVID groups on fb, PM me

No questions.

Just wanted to say thank you for providing some real information about all of this instead of the garbage they put out on the news.

Also, thank you for your efforts on the front line and stay safe.

Is there a need for mercenary laborers in the health care fields? Not that the pay is important or that anyone should take advantage of others, but is there a place for someone with no medical background but willing to work hard and risk sickness to help?

Seconded. I haven't been back to Hudson Mills more than twice in 20 years and crave going back, especially after encountering the 2006 DGLO with Al Schack leading on YouTube the other day.

Your Frisbee Family is rooting for you!

Hope he doesn't mind my saying so, but Ru works for Beaumont. Not sure which facility he's at, but that's the company he works for. Over the past several years, they've really grown by buying/merging with a bunch of hospitals in the metro area.
