As a former ED RN and nurse manager, I understand exactly what these nurses were being to do: provide suboptimal care in dangerous conditions. Quarantining and chillin with my gnomies. In CA ICU’s, we are legally limited to 2 patients, who may be on ventilators and IV drips requiring constant care and management.

In ED, we may have no more than 5. There is no way 2 nurses can do that for 10 patients, plus another 16 in various states of illness. I am glad they stood their ground, but they left their day shift colleagues in a terrible spot. These nurses are human beings too.
Where to find Quarantining and chillin with my gnomies shirt?
They can only be expected to take on so much all while putting themselves and their families in danger. They need support to be able to do their jobs and do them well. The fact that that request was denied and they were told to leave is the unbelievable part. I’d argue that they were the ones being abandoned. Quarantining and chillin with my gnomies. While we sit here at home, safe, they are helping the sick, our loved ones and fellow humans, and how anyone has the audacity to criticize them is beyond me. Courtney Knox no they did not abandon those patients if they refused to take care of them due to short staffing at the beginning of the shift. Only if they accepted the assignment and left after they accepted is it considered abandonment.
