THROWN OUT: A Trauma Surgeon’s COVID Experience
PUBLISHED ON MEDSCAPE
When the pandemic arrived, something happened to us, and we need to talk about it.
Throughout my career as a trauma surgeon, I have proudly relied upon and participated within diverse and specialized teams. With fellow surgeons, nurses, cooks, and housekeepers, together we have celebrated miraculous recoveries and have been moved by devastating losses.
Even before COVID-19, we sacrificed time with our families and canceled too many personal moments — because that’s the oath that we took. And I never thought twice about doing it.
