Kamala Harris on Thursday called a registered nurse to Chicago to thank her for her work during the epidemic.
Harris also called the call side.
A NNU spokeswoman told CNN that the phone call lasted 15 minutes, during which Hardin talked more about her time as a nurse.
“Talisa [Hardin] he talked about how he and other nurses had to buy their own personal protective equipment because the hospital did not provide what they needed, ”NNU wrote in a statement to CNN. [Hardin] he said it was a disgrace because he would not send a soldier into battle without equipment. ”
Hardin’s mother and uncle both acquired Covid-19, and his uncle is currently in the hospital.
He said the medical center did not provide them with the necessary equipment – such as face shields and hospital clothes.
“As a nurse, it was deeply disappointing to listen to hospital lawyers, people with no experience in medical or nursing care, unwilling to listen to the health professionals working in their hospital. The leadership was consistently lenient and patronizing to our nurses,” Hardin said. .
Hardin said the lack of resources increased the risk of passing the virus to health care staff and their families. She sent her own daughter to live with her grandmother, meaning the two of them spent Mother’s Day separately.
“When I come home every day, I live in fear of the virus,” Hardin told Congress. “When I get home, I have to take off my bushes because the hospital doesn’t give us hospital shrubs. I’ll leave them outside in a plastic bag for a few days before I bring them in to wash.”
