“From nurse to PUI real quick.
We’ve been living inside the hospital for weeks caring for our patients. We are all tired, exhausted, and overwhelmed but can’t go home because we are all scared that we might bring the virus with us to our vulnerable families at home. But these past few days were different, I became the PUI. So I need to wait until my quarantine is over and hopefully, no severe signs and symptoms will come out. After this phase, I will go back to the battlefield and continue to serve. This is just one of the risks that we are facing everyday as frontliners. We may be unappreciated, uncompensated, called as “room nurses”, “katulong ng mga doctor”, atbp., but we will stand committed to our pledge. We work not because we are paid to do so, but because we are healthcare providers and we are all instruments of healing.
