The peak hospitalizations and deaths in New York City hit around April 7th. Life though in hospitals in New York though have not returned to normal. What were previously operating rooms, post-hip fracture units, or cardiac cath labs, are now units dedicated to the care of individuals hospitalized with COVID. We talk with two NYU clinicians, Ab Brody and Audrey Tan about what life is like right now in this new state of limbo as both palliative care clinicians and as their role as either a NP hospitlist or Emergency department physician. Ab Brody is the Associate Director of the Hartford Institute for Geriatrics Nursing at NYU. Audrey is the Director of Emergency of Medicine and Palliative Care in the Department of Emergency Medicine at NYU. We are also welcoming back our guest host Nauzley Abedini from UCSF. A couple of topics that we talk about include: - What's life like right now at NYU post-surge? - What's it like to look at the COVID crises in the lens of a palliative care consultant and their role as a primary provider in the ED or the hospital? - Geriatric issues that they are seeing in the ED or the wards. - How they are recognizing and dealing with morel distress? - The worry about PTSD and the worry for our workforce post this pandemic. - The stress that not only comes with work but also what it's like to go home by: Eric Widera (@ewidera)
